Ground morning glory

Convolvulus sabiatus


The Ground morning glory is a delightful eye-catching perennial that hugs the ground and flows around rocks and other plants with ease. Its fresh and attractive foliage is covered in spring with a flush of pastel blue flowers that bring cool color to both sunny and shady garden areas.

The Ground morning glory quickly grows 2-3 ft. wide and 12-18 in. tall with herbaceous branching. It does best in partial shade, away from hot afternoon sun, and on well-drained soils. The best performance from this plant is for the first 3-4 years before it looses its dense character.
