In Wim Vader's report of a stroll in the" balmy" Netherlands (well compared 
with Tromso), he pondered the English for Calystegia sepium, not having his 
English plant book with him.
It is Hedge Bindweed, also known as Bugle vine, Heavenly trumpets or Bellbind 
(amongst others).  Many laymen know it as convolvulus.
Formerly called Convolvulus<> sepium 
it is has a  
throughout the temperate Northern and Southern hemispheres. It has several 
regional subspecies. A smothering species, it has trumpet shaped flowers that 
are white or, in the case of some subspecies, pink.
