Bindweed, Wild Morning Glory
Don’t be fooled: This is not your grandmother’s morning glory!
Convolvulus arvensis, also known as bindweed or wild morning glory, can be an incredibly invasive and frustrating garden weed. This invasive vine sinks its roots as deep as nine feet underground and can persist for up to 20 years! Plants spread by seed and by their extensive root system. It tolerates poor compacted soils but does not like wet or waterlogged areas. Vines must be physically removed as soon as they are spotted.
