Convolvulus Cneorum (with Sedum Mojave jewels ruby)

Convolvulus Cneorum AGM


Add to wish list

This captivating evergreen plant has elongated foliage in a silvery/grey, which adds interest to the winter garden and flags up its tolerance of heat in the summer. In the very early spring, delicate pink buds emerge, opening into classic, convolvulus-shaped, funnel flowers with a yellow eye. The undersides of the conjoined petals retain the delicate pink striation of the bud.

Roughly translated from the Greek, ‘cneorum’ means olive-like and the lovely silvery leaves of this little Mediterranean plant justify this name and explain its tolerance of heat and dryness. It is also nectar rich so attracts early pollinating insects. 

The Royal Horticultural Society has given Convolvulus Cneorum its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
