I too would say Bindweed and a nuisance

Bindweed this stuff I have been trying to get rid of for years it does produce nice white flowers but such a nuisance

The ironic thing about Bindweed is that it's actually one of our prettiest native plants, the heart-shaped leaves are lovely and, like all the Morning-Glory/Convolvulus, the large trumpet shaped flowers are almost tropical in appearance....

Unfortunately it's also one of the most invasive and tough-to-get-rid-of weeds you can get in your garden. If only it were slower growing everyone would want one!

Too true Ilex.....Thanks to everyone for your help.....This patch of ground has never had bindweed on it....maybe it came with some of the new plants i put in during the Spring....I know how difficult it is to eradicate....thanks again....:>)
