1/6

Convolvulus arvensis is commonly known as field bindweed. It is a prolific weed that usually attacks fields and roadsides but can also be a major problem in garden lawns. Climbs by twisting its stems around which makes it especially hard to remove from anything that it climbs. Has beautiful white or pink trumpet-shaped flowers and arrow-shaped leaves. Very similar in appearance to hedge bindweed, Calystegia sepium.
