Evolvulus glomeratus

 
Evolvulus glomeratus

Common name dwarf morning glory
Family convolvulaceae
Life cycle tender perennial (Z8-11)
Flowers blue
Size 12"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well drained soil

Perennial or subshrub native to South America that is usually grown as an annual. Its lax stems produce a mound only about a foot tall, but up to three times as wide, with densely fuzzy leaves and clear blue flowers. Each flower opens in the morning and lasts a day; they are produced in great numbers through the growing season. Although they are members of the morning glory family, evolvulus species don't climb. Instead, their wandering stems may take root where they touch the soil, which provides an easy way to propagate them. Mulching can help to prevent winter kill in climates where they are marginally hardy, such as our Houston zone.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
