It does look like THE bindweed (convolvulus arvensis). This is not in my yard but in the ditch at the end of our street. I don't know what to tell you NotMartha. Your vine may turn out to be a big problem in the future. I think it's the seeds that it drops that are such a pain. Maybe someone that knows more about it will fill us in.

I was thinking maybe I'd try to cross this pollen with some of my other glories and see what happens. Just for fun....

Poppy...looks like it is bindweed! I would be grateful to you if you could snatch me a few seeds for sase! Would you please?

Notmartha...if they bloom in the evening, they are moonvine! I grow these every year and I pick the seeds to keep them from taking over! The seedpods get huge so you should be able to get them all!

YES, it is bindweed. I also have it my garden and it is trying to entangle itself in the veggie garden and on the berries I have growing along the fence. I have to be VERY diligent and pull it out daily, otherwise it will flower and go to seed, and then you will have it everywhere!

I still want some! PLEASE!

That is Calystegia sepium ssp. americana from the shape of the sepals, it spreads by rhizomes. Oddly enough I saw it growing in Malta?!

That is pretty. I want seeds too. I can send you some gray Japanese morning glory seeds in exchange. Good luck on the crossing.

If that's a weed , let it in my yard because that is really pretty.

I think it it is Calystegia sepium. I'd rather have that than marigolds for sure.
