Convulvulus ‘Moroccan Beauty’
Convulvulus sabatius ‘Moroccan Beauty’ was selected from a growing commercial crop for its dense growth habit with short internodes. This produces more flower power than other convolvulus in cultivation.
‘Moroccan Beauty’ is a compact, sprawling tender perennial that bears an ongoing display of petite, light blue-violet, trumpet-shaped flowers from spring until frost. The small rounded green to gray-green leaves are evergreen except in the coldest of winters. The trailing stems are woody at the base. This tough perennial does best in loose, gravelly, well-drained soil and full sun. It is very tolerant of heat. Because of its tightly compact and trailing habit, 'Moroccan Beauty' is an ornamental landscape plant suitable for use as a groundcover and as a hanging basket or in a mixed container.
