Calystegia sepium

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.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

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.
