Convolvulus Tricolor is a hardy bushy plant, and not a climber like Ipomea Purpurea. It is grown as a bedding plant for the rockery or front of the border. It produces an abundance of eye catching flowers. Each flower is a wide-mouthed trumpet brightly colored with a yellow or golden heart. Unfortunately Convolvulus is short lived, the flowers open in the morning and fade in the evening.
Germination Temperature (°F)
Water regularly in dry weather.
Sow seeds in September or March where it is to flower.
Convolvulus thrives in poor sandy soil. Deadhead regularly.
The first potatoes were cultivated in Peru about 7,000 years ago.
