Hello All,

Two years ago I dug up, split, took home and planted a bunch of Hostas from my father in-law. It was a much needed border filler and they look great. Unbeknownst to me, I also took home with me sort of vining weed that is very aggressive and difficult to control. I'm hoping that if someone can help to identify it I can get rid of it easier. I was super diligent in pulling the shoots up when I saw them but now the hostas are fully opened up it's much harder to see any stragglers. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

It looks like Bindweed (wild morning glory). Have you seen it bloom?

My first thought was also Bindweed, probably Field Bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis)

Appreciate the replies and links. I've never seen it bloom and it had the opportunity last year. It completely engulfed a trellis and killed a clematis I had there. In looking at the pictures for bindweed, it seems like maybe the leafs on mine are more pointed? And if it bloomed like in those pics I wouldn't even be bothered by it lol. I'll keep digging around; that NY floral atlas page is super helfpul.

Leaves can be variable. Check out some of these photos of Field Bindweed on these pages:

It's not a bindweed, rather it is: Wild Buckwheat (Fallopia convolvulus)

You didn't see the flowers last year because, unlike true bindweeds, its flowers are fairly inconspicous. As you noted, it is a rampant grower. It's an annual, though, That's good news because if you can find the base of the plant and pull it up, you'll kill the whole thing.
