Taxonomy Comments: Brummitt treated this (in Calystegia) as a North American subspecies of Calystegia silvatica (see synonymy), with three other subspecies in the Old World: ssp. silvatica and ssp. disjuncta Brummitt European and ssp. orientalis Brummitt e. Asian. This taxon is on a separate evolutionary trajectory and warrants specific rank.
