Convolvulaceae are a group of about 60 genera and more than 1,650 species of mostly herbaceous vines, but also trees, shrubs and herbs. According to the study of D. F. Austin the family Convolvulaceae can be classified in the tribes Ericybeae, Cressea, Convolvuleae, merremioids, Ipomoeae, Argyreiae, Poraneae, Dichondreae and Cuscuteae (sometimes classified as a separate family Cuscutaceae).

Members of the family are well known as showy garden plants (e.g. morning glory) and as troublesome weeds (e.g. bindweed).

Field Bindweed (Convovulus arvensis) is a long-lived perennial, which produces a dense ground cover. The twining stems vary from 1.5 to 6 feet or more in length. It produces white to pink flowers from April through September and seeds that may lie dormant in the soil for 30 to 40 years.
