Scientific Name

Description

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.
