What is CALYSTEGIA?

(Bear-bind. Nat. Ord. Convolvulaceae).This is a rather large genus of hardy and halfhardy perennial or evergreen twiners and trailers of little garden value. Probably the most suitable as well as the most attractive is C. Soldanella, a flame-coloured June and July blooming plant about 12 ins. high, though C hederacea plena (Syn. C. pubescens) is a good dwarf rosecoloured twiner. C. septum is the well-known weed the Greater Bindweed or Common Bear-bind, a most troublesome plant the best means of dealing with which will be found described in our article on Weeds under the former name. See also CLIMBING AND TRAILING Plants.
