Field Bindweed
  • Field bindweed is a perennial that reproduces by seeds and rhizomes.
  • Vines many feet long trail over the soil and vegetation and often form dense mats.
  • Leaves alternate along the stem and are attached to it by a short leaf stalk or petiole.
  • Leaf size and shape may vary considerably; typically leaves are up to two inches long and ovate (egg-shaped) with a pair of basal lobes pointing down and/or outward.
  • Flowers are funnel-shaped, one-inch in diameter, white to pinkish, and borne singly on long flowerstalk.
  • Two small bracts (appendages) on the flowerstalk, 1/2 to 2 inches below the flower, distinguish field bindweed from hedge bindweed.
