The bindweed is of the morning glory family. Note the arrow or spade shaped leaves. It puts out runners; loves fences or adjacent bushes which it will use for support. A novice might mistake the bindweed with the mallow, but a comparison of the two will show that there are considerable differences. The bind weed blooms from May to September. Its flowers may be white or pink. The bindweed is to be found all over in thickets and roadside tangles. It seems to like to be in the sunshine and will be found abundantly in open waste lands.
