A plant with long twining stems grows across the lawn. Leaves are arrowhead-shaped, up to 2 inches long. White to pink funnel-shaped flowers, about 1 inch across, appear from spring to fall. Field bindweed, also known as wild morning glory, is found throughout most of the U.S. in lawns, gardens, and fields and along roadways. It is one of the most difficult weeds to eliminate because of its extensive root system, which may grow 15 to 20 feet deep. The weed twines over shrubs and fences and up into trees.
Roots or pieces of roots left behind from hand-pulling or spading easily resprout.
