Hedge Bindweed Overview
Calystegia sepium is also known commonly as hedge bindweed. It is a prolific weed that usually attacks hedgerows and small trees. It climbs by twisting stems, which makes it especially hard to remove from anything that it climbs. Has beautiful white or pink trumpet-shaped flowers and large arrow-shaped leaves. Very similar in appearance to field bindweed, Convolvulus arvensis, though it is much larger and slightly less invasive.
