Bindweed, small-flowered morningglory, creeping Jenny, green-vine, corn-lily, lap-love, hedge-bells
Field bindweed is a common weed in subdivisions that were converted from agricultural land. Bindweed has an aggressive rhizomatous root system with trailing stems that spread quickly and can overtake mulched beds, bushes and fence rows. It is common to see bindweed smothering junipers and other bushes. The white and pink flowers are distinctly from the morningglory family. The veins are conspicuous on the arrowhead shaped leaves (sagitate or hastate).
Field bindweed is most commonly mistaken for red sorrel. Bindweed is much more vine-like than red sorrel and the lobes at the base of the leaf are more pointed. The leaves of field bindweed have very prominent veins and lack the velvety appearance of red sorrel. The flowers are distinctly different as bindweed is in the morning glory family.
