Convolvulus ‘Early Blue’ has a handsome, mounded, upright habit with mid green foliage. While common Convovulus have sparse flowers and long trails, this new variety is well branched and compact with plenty of lilac blue blooms.
It makes a great bedding plant, good ground cover, is superb in containers, wonderful in rock gardens and excellent as an edging plant. Suitable for gardens and pots or hanging baskets. It makes a great choice for combination planting with spring bulbs as they will grow right up through the carpeting foliage. It is also a nice option for planting beneath roses as it will not compete for nutrients and will help to shade the ground.
Convolvulus is super hardy and low maintenance. The plants are covered in flowers for many months and they are dry tolerant.
Plant Convolvulus in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot.
