Description

Evolvulus glomeratus, or Dwarf Morning Glory, is a tender perennial more often grown as an annual that is a member of the Convolvulaceae family. It has brilliant blue flowers over a carpet of fuzzy, oval-shaped green leaves. As an annual in containers, it is often hung over the edge of baskets; as a perennial groundcover, it spreads over stone walls or flower beds. It is not a hardy plant, but if planted in the ground, it will form sprawling mounds 9 to 18 inches tall. Trailing stems tend to grow somewhat horizontally to downward when planted in baskets or containers. Flowers usually close up at night and on cloudy days. It is drought tolerant and no known serious problems with insects, pests, or diseases.

If you take cuttings in summer for next spring, you can keep them indoors in a bright cool location. Water sparingly.
