Calystegia hederacea / Kohirugao コヒルガオ

 
Calystegia hederacea is a perennial liana commonly found in grassland or roadside, propagating by extending its white underground stems, the vine growing winding itself around something else. The alternate leaves are hastate, 3-7cm long, the basal part overhanging sideways looking like a pair of ears. Flowers singly come on a 2-5cm stalk born on a leaf axil.
