Hedge Bindweed (Calystegia Sepium [Convolvulus Sepium]) is a perennial viney forb in the Morning Glory Family (Convolvulaceae). It’s not well known if it’s native or was introduced to the United States; it’s however believed to be native to southern Canada and Eurasia. It blooms Jun-Aug and grows creeping but mostly climbing 6-12 ft. It’s found in forest edges and openings; likes moist to dry soils and partial to full sun exposure.
Hedge Bindweed is a viney plant that may be undesirable in gardens and in habitat restoration because it climbs up and pulls down on planted trees and shrubs. Plant seeds remain viable in the soil for up to 30 years, meaning years of maintenance.
