Exploring the Bindweed Plants

8 most common species:
Convolvulus arvensis
Field bindweed
Field bindweed (*Convolvulus arvensis*) is a native Eurasian plant related to morning glory. It is considered an invasive species in non-native areas because it competes with other plants for sunlight and moisture. Field bindweed is very hard to eradicate because its taproots grow so deep, and its seeds can remain viable for decades.
Convolvulus sabatius
Blue rock bindweed
Blue rock bindweed is a perennial vine from the Mediterranean, often seen trailing along fences and other plants. The flowers are lavender-blue or violet and very numerous, which is why this bindweed species and its several cultivars have become popular garden plants.
Convolvulus cneorum
Silver bush
Silver bush (Convolvulus cneorum) is an unusual, evergreen shrub. It is native to the Mediterranean, where it grows on limestone hills. It's also sometimes used as an ornamental garden plant for its prolific flowering and silvery foliage.
Convolvulus althaeoides
Mallow bindweed
Mallow bindweed (Convolvulus althaeoides) is a type of morning glory. It is native to the Mediterranean region, but has been imported to Japan and western North America as well. The creeping rootstocks and twining stems make homes among rock crags under full sun. The funnel-shaped flowers attract honeybees.
Convolvulus tricolor
Dwarf morning glory
Dwarf morning glory (Convolvulus tricolor) is a Mediterranean plant which has become popular for garden borders, window boxes, and hanging baskets. It can tolerate heat, drought, and poor soil. Its cobalt blue flowers last only a day but are followed by others in succession. They are loved by hummingbirds and butterflies.
Convolvulus lanuginosus
Woolly bindweed
Woolly bindweed is a popular ornamental plant whose silver evergreen leaves and elegant flowers make great additions to the beds and borders of Mediterranean gardens. Hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies are all frequent visitors when the flowers are in bloom. Despite its ability to spread well in gardens, this species of bindweed isn't invasive when it escapes ornamental growth.
Convolvulus cantabrica
Cantabrican morning glory
Cantabrican morning glory (Convolvulus cantabrica) is quickly identified by funnel-shaped pink to purple flowers atop silver-haired stems and leaves. Bindweeds are among gardeners' most frustrating weeds because they are hardy and spread easily along cracks and crevices, making them extremely difficult to get rid of.
Convolvulus equitans
Texas bindweed
Texas bindweed (Convolvulus equitans) is slender, branched vine morning glory species. Texas bindweed grows in prairies and disturbed areas in Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Arizona and Mexico. This species requires low amounts of water, dry soil, and partial shade for optimal growth.

The dwarf morning glory 'Blue Ensign' is an award-winning annual/perennial with flared trumpet royal blue blooms containing a golden center surrounded by a white ring. They attract hummingbirds and butterflies for their nectar and are essentially safe from diseases and pests.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
