Field bindweed is a prostrate or climbing weed with stems up to 4 foot long. The alternate leaves are more or less arrowhead shaped. The white flowers are trumpet-shaped or bell-shaped and about one inch across.
Field bindweed has a deep taproot and does well in arid regions. It is highly adaptable and does well in many habitats. It flowers from June to frost in the fall of the year. The seeds remain viable in the soil for about 50 years.
