Bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis) is a perennial herbaceous climber from Eurasia. This plant is found in most regions where it was accidentally introduced as a contaminant in horticultural and agricultural seeds.
The climbing plant belongs to the genus Convolvulus and has around 250 species of this cone-shaped flower. Bindweed is a long-lived herbaceous plant with prostrate or intertwined stems.
The leaves vary in shape and size but are typically 1 to 2 inches tall and sometimes arrowhead-shaped. the flowers are about an inch in diameter, bell-shaped or tubular, and typically white, often with a light pink pattern.
Two small bracts appear on the stem, about 1 inch below the base of the flower.
