Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

36. Greater Bindweed
(Calystegia sepium L.)

36. Greater Bindweed

A common plant of the southern part of Britain, found in hedges, woods, and gardens. It is a climbing plant, the stems extending many feet, and gardeners abhor it. However, it bears a fine flower, pure waxy white and bell-shaped, and where it does no harm is very beautiful. The flowers open in the daytime and close at night. It blooms from June to August.
