Field Bindweed may be easily confused with:
- Hedge Bindweed
Basal lobes of leaves on hedge bindweed are blunt, while they are sharply pointed on field bindweed.
- Wild Potato Vine
The leaf of the potato vine is very distinctly heart-shaped.
We started out as wildflowers from the bicycle trails of western Pennsylvania, but we've grown!
