Convolvulus equitans - Texas Bindweed

Convolvulus equitans – Texas Bindweed

Back to flowering plants, this time a small vine that grows close to the ground and has fairly small flowers which are less than a inch and a half  across, if that much. A member of the Morning Glory family, it resembles other members of the family.  Its leaves are distinctive as seen in this photo just above the blossom. It likes partial shade and is in general easy to overlook.
