Calystegia sepium or Hedge Bindweed is also known as Rutland Beauty or Bellbind or Convolvulus sepium. It is a herbaceous perennial. It is a climber and it twines itself around other plants to climb and or establish itself. It flowers from spring to autumn with white trumpet-shaped flowers. It has heart-shaped leaves and grows from underground stems or rhizomes. Seeds can remain in the soil for many years. Though beautiful it is really considered as a weed and hard to eradicate, as roots go very deep and it spreads fast. The only method to eradicate it is to be persistent in digging it out.
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
