Field bindweed is a perennial, and spreads both by seed and creeping roots. The cotyledons on the seedlings are spatulate in shape, broad, and indented at the tip. Mature leaves are alternate and spade or heart shaped. Mature plants have a prostrate growth form.  Flowers are pink or white and funnel shaped. There are two small bracts about one inch below the flowers. Once established, this weed is difficult to control and is a serious weed in mint production.
