Unlike most bindweeds, this plant is not much of a vine. The stems are short and upright when the plant is in bloom, though later in the season they may elongate into an 18-inch vine. Low bindweed is believed to have been eliminated from Connecticut. The photographs show plants in eastern Ontario, Canada.
