Description: This bindweed is a hemicryptophyte scapose plant reaching on average 20–50 centimetres (7.9–20 in) in height. It has simple, alternate, lanceolate leaves, coarsely hairy on both sides. The wide funnel-shaped flowers are actinomorphic ("star shaped", "radial") and arranged on a long petiole at the leaf axils. The corolla is 15-25 mm long and usually pale pink, but it can be completely white. The flowers are hermaphrodite and pollinated by insects (entomogamy). The fruits are globose and pubescent capsules with 2-4 brownish seeds.

Biology: The flowering period extends from May through October.

Habitat: Rocky places, sunny slopes, xerophilous prairies, dry grassland and scrublands with calcareous soil, at an altitude of 0–1,300 metres (0–4,300 ft) above sea level.

Distribution: Southern Europe, Western Asia; widespread in the Mediterranean coasts; from Northern Morocco, Spain and Baleares to Israel and to South-West Russia.
