False Bindweed grows best in the ground. Prepare a suitable hole in a sandy, nutritious soil. Improve your soil by mixing in some compost or granulated cow manure. Plant the False Bindweed horizontally at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the roots should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. False Bindweed grows and flourishes in an area with complete sunshine.

False Bindweed is a climbing plant

False Bindweed is not only a fantastic ground cover plant, but the long, winding stems of this perennial can also climb. They need a climbing support such as a trellis or fence. False Bindweed also grows well in a flower pot or planter.

The scientific name of Calystegia 'Flore Pleno' is 'hedereafolium referring to the ivy-like leaves that cover the ground quite well. The Calystegia originated in Japan and is also called Calystegia 'Flore Pleno Japanese or Japanese bindweed.

Water your False Bindweed regularly to prevent the soil around the roots from drying out. Remove the faded flowers regularly to encourage a good growth. For an extra rich flowering, we recommend to add plant food along with water regularly during the summer. 

False Bindweed is sensitive to frost

False Bindweed is sensitive to severe frost. Protect the plants during the winter by covering them with a layer of fallen leaves or conifer branches. Or preferably store False Bindweed in a pot in a frost-free area. Too much moisture in the winter is not well-tolerated. Completely prune some of its older stems in the spring.
