Convolvulus Cneorum

Convolvulus Cneorum


Position: full sun
Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained, gritty soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: May to July
Hardiness: frost hardy (may need protection in winter)


A wonderful, evergreen shrub with cup-shaped, white flowers with pale yellow centres from late spring to summer. This plant is an asset to the garden for its shiny, silvery foliage, as well as its flowers. It is happiest in a hot, sunny border where it contrasts well with blues and purples, and it also looks stunning cascading over a wall. In areas with cold, wet winters it is best grown in a container.


Garden care: Prune lightly after flowering to keep in shape.
