Field Bindweed, also known as Morning-Glory (Convolvulus Arvensis) is a perennial viney forb in the Morning Glory Family (Convolvulaceae). It’s native to Europe and Asia, blooms Apr-Oct and grows climbing or creeping 2-6 ft. It tolerates moist to dry soils and partial shade to full sun exposure.
Field Bindweed is a common weed in gardens, crop fields, wet prairies, savanna and forest edges and openings. It’s a problematic weed in habitat restoration because it chokes out native plantings and wild flowers. Plant seeds remain viable in the soil for up to 20 years, meaning years of maintenance.
