Bindweed has several names–Creeping Jenny, Creeping Charlie, Wild Morning Glory to name a few. Like many other weeds, they are difficult to get rid of since it has an extensive root system and if you do not remove it all, it will return. Repeated applications of herbicide will be needed to kill it off.
The flowers look a lot like Morning Glory flowers and the leaves are distinctly arrow-shaped. It is a vine and in extreme cases, it will choke out good plants if not controlled.
Bindweed isn’t blooming yet and just beginning to emerge. This is the best time to control before they start to spread. For more information go to CSU Extension at: http://www.colostate.edu/Dept/CoopExt/4dmg/Weed/bindw1.htm.
