Convolvulus arvensis (field bindweed)

.
Bindweed is a pretty plant with a pleasant fragrance, native to Europe and Asia. It has trumpet-shaped flowers, usually white or very pale purple or pink, which open and arrow-shaped leaves. It creeps along the ground or will climb a vertical object, such as a fence or another plant. There is a broad leaved and a narrow leaved variety.
The vine grows around the year and very quickly lets out its long roots. Owing to its rapid multiplication, bindweed is now considered a nuisance that is hard to eradicate and a dangerous invasive herb. Bindweed have the potential to out-compete any plant around it and to use other plants to get more sunlight, it is also a carrier for diseases that affect food crops such as potatoes and tomatoes.
A plant that is considered a bane to agriculturists can also have multiple health benefits and medicinal uses. Bindweed has been known since long for its properties to purify and cleanse the body and calm the mind. Also can be used like twine, the leaves and stems can be used to make a dye.
