Bindweed Family Convolvulaceae


Bindweeds do what they say on the label, they are 'weeds' that bind or entwine themselves around other plants, usually anticlockwise, to grow upwards towards the light. They have large white, or pale pink, trumpet flowers. Members of the family are easily spotted but identification between some may be tricky.
