Convolvulus arvensis


Tiny weed seen in a field in Fremont on 28/9/14.

Looks to be Field Bindweed.
Kindly validate.


This must be a different species …

This is more of a spreading form while Convolvulus arvensis is distinct in being a twiner, and also do not have hirsute leaves with undulate margins as are here in this plant, a close up of leaves will surely help…


Thanks for pointing out and correcting me.
I have cropped a picture of the leaves.
Hope it helps.


I had seen something similar in San Francisco near the beach and was told it was Calystegia macrostegia, am uploading a pic for comparison.
Can your plant be the same?

Thanks for the pictures. I really can’t say.
Our experts need to validate.


Xenostegia Species?


Reply from …,
“I agree , that it is Convolvulus arvensis

please identify this plant, which from the stairs of the back side of the Art Museum Warsaw


There are two different plants in these photographs – the twining plant with arrow shaped leaves and white flowers is probably Convolvulus arvensisThe plant with Palmate leaves is Parthenocissus quinquefolia, or similar.  The Parthenocissus is a commonly grown garden plant and the Convolvulus is a native weed. 


Well not to ID exactly just give a hint. The pinkish flower is some Ipomoea or Calystegia in Convolvulaceae. The other climber is probably Parthenocissus, Vitaceae.

Pl. check if you can find a match here: Ipomoea
Thanks, …, for the beautiful pictures.


Does not seem to match with any species in comparative images in efi so far: Ipomoea


Merremia tridentata..?


Its Convolvulus arvensis, a common weed of agriculture field.

Wild herb from Hemis area Ladakh


Pl. check comparative images at efi site on genera page. 


/species/a—l/cl/convolvulaceae/ipomoea


I immediately recognised what this was – an invasive ubiquitous weed I came across during my first expedition to Ladakh in 1980, which I knew from the UK; Stewart knew it from Sind and Punjab to 3600m in Ladakh & Baltistan.
Pity only 2 images, not in close-up and with the flowers over-exposed (to be fair, it is difficult to get the exposure right for white, yellow and similar-coloured flowers on a bright sunny day in Ladakh) were sent.  An approximate altitude should always be given.
Perhaps the confusion has arisen by the incorrect suggestion of it belonging to the Ipomoea genus?  I do not know why this genus was
suggested.  Please, please, would posters of images consider the geographic and altitudinal ranges of genera and individual species before
making suggestions as to identification, particularly if they are senior figures, as in many entries I see them immediately out of respect – yet they are clearly incorrect.  A large number of Ipomoea are known from India – many being natives of tropical America, cultivated in warm countries for their pretty flowers.  However, no species have been recorded wild or cultivated from Ladakh – it would probably be possible to cultivate I.purpurea at Leh, if it was provided with the necessary protection (this plant is grown in Srinagar and the Murree Hills; Collet recorded it in the valleys below Shimla) but obviously the plant Santhan photographed is not this.
The species photographed, assuming in the future, it is not subdivided into more than one, is highly variable in terms of corolla colour and leaf-shape – with quite a number of forms and varieties recognised.


Thanks, … I think your reply is incomplete as you did not tell the final I’d.   


That was intentional. 


OK. Thanks. 


It is closely resembling Convolvulus arvensis L., It is reported in the Flora of Himalayas by ET ATKNSON 1882.

Yes, I agree with your id as per images at Convolvulus arvensis
