Transformational Gardening

Disclaimer: Foraging can be fun, rewarding and provide health benefits. As a novice forager, I will be sharing my foraging experiences. However, in order to be safe, always consult with local foraging experts and guidebooks before beginning foraging. Children should learn to forage safely by being guided by experienced adults. Never ingest anything unless you are certain of the identification and safety of the plant. Some plant species are inedible and some are poisonous.

August 27, 2011 Southeastern, New Hampshire Thought this might be another False Bindweed. But there are only two other species in New Hampshire:
  • Japanese False Bindweed (Calystegia hederacea): Almost always a double flower. Corolla is smaller (2-3.5 cm) as opposed to Hedge False Bindweed (4-7 cm).
  • Low False Bindweed (Calystegia spithamaea): Leaf petiole less than half as long as petiole. Leaf tip rounded.
