Hi, all. This vine has sprung up in my yard, and I'd like to find out
what it is. I've tried some of the online things where you enter a
plant's characteristics; they seem pretty poor when it comes to vines.
The leaves are rather dark green, about three inches long, and
heart-shaped like a morning glory, but more elongated. The flowers are
cream-colored and star-shaped, less than 1/2" in diameter and grow in
clusters. They are also very fragrant. I'm in Jackson, TN, zone 7.
Sounds like "black bindweed", also called "climbing buckwheat". It is a
very common annual weed adored by bees. Sorry, I don't have the scientific
name, but try a search by those common names and pictures will be available.
