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."
secundus, following, next, second; in a row, leaves on one side, secund.
The Hebrew word chavalval, חבלבול. Shaul Tchernichovsky (1875 – 1943), poem: "You Are So Fragrant" (19.7.1929):... ניחוחם של חבלבלים, nichucham shel chavalvalim, fragrance of Convolvulus (Tchernichovsky's Note: chavalval, חבלבול, Convolvulus L. Winde, Bindweed, Вьюнок).
  • The standard author abbreviation Desr. is used to indicate Louis Auguste Joseph Desrousseaux (1753 – 1838), a French botanist.
