Commonly known as Bindweed

The well-behaved and attractive C. cneorum is the usual offering from garden centres.

The UK native C. arvensis, field bindweed (usually pink and white) and the introduced Calystegia sepium, hedge bindweed or bellbine (white trumpets) are the characters that cause the misery.

Genus of about 250 species of upright, climbing or scrambling annuals and perennials, and evergreen shrubs or subshrubs occuring in diverse habitats in subtropical and temperate areas.
