Convolvulus arvensis B. S. Walters

A deep-rooted pesky Eurasian weed of gardens and lawns, along roadsides and railroads; in fields, fencerows, parking lots, and disturbed ground generally. Apparently not collected in Michigan until 1890 (in Kent and St. Clair Cos.), but by the end of that decade the species had been collected in at least six counties throughout the Lower Peninsula.

Quite variable in pubescence and in leaf shape; the flowers are usually white, occasionally pink.
