Convolvulaceae, the Morning Glory Mandala | Glendon Place - August Needlework Expo
Convolvulaceae, known commonly as the bindweed or morning glory family, consists of roughly 60 genera (or types within the family). Within those 60 types, there are more than 1,650 different species, most being herbaceous vines. The traditional morning glory is the most well-known and popular type within this family. Convolvulaceae can be recognized by their funnel-shaped flowers. The stems of these plants are usually winding, which is where their name derives from; “convolvere”, which is Latin for “to wind”.
