Flowers of Black-bindweed in an uncultivated field margin

Field Margin Flowers 8 – Black-bindweed

Scroll down to content

This post features Black-bindweed (Fallopia convolvulus). A difficult plant to distinguish from amongst all the other arable weeds. It is a widespread and common common annual that twines clockwise regardless of whether it trails on the ground or climbs among other plants. The flowers, that are small and greenish and look like those of dock plants, grow in loose spikes that arise from the leaf axils (Collins Complete Guide to British Wild Flowers – a photographic guide to every common species by Paul Sterry).
