Derivation of the botanical name:
Convolvulus, Latin, convolvere, "to twine around"; "a bindweed" (Plinius), from convolvo, volvi, volutum, ere "to droll together, roll up, intertwine."
pentapetaloides, πεντα-, five; resembling five petals.
  • The standard author abbreviation L. is used to indicate Carl Linnaeus (1707 – 1778), a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, the father of modern taxonomy.
