Convolvulus (Canary Morning Glory)

Convolvulus or Morning Glory are winter hardy to tropical, usually annual or semiperennial (rarely perennial) climbers with trumpet-shaped flowers. Few species, such as some native of the Canary Islands, are growing as perennial shrubs or may become even small woody trees (e.g. Convolvulus floridus). Shrub-like species suit well as container plants. Any well drained rocky soil with some humus in a sunny spot will work. In winter keep perennial Canary species cool and drier in a frostfree and sunny spot at a minimum of some 10°C.
Sow seeds flat in any well drained sandy and humus rich soil. Keep pots in a sunny spot and soil always slightly moist from beneath. Ideal temperature for germination is in between a minimum of some 15° (night) to a maximum of some 25°C (day). In several Canary plants higher temperatures will slow down or even inhibit germination !
10 seeds per package.
