Evolvulus is a non-vining Morning-glory with trailing stems. Lovely blue flowers bloom in the early morning, but close in the afternoon. The plant is best for making landscape groundcover and hanging baskets. Propagation is by stem cuttings. The silver green leaves are silky and hairy. The five petals are fused together to form a saucer-shaped flower.
