Is Convolvulus a type of morning glory? I sowed some of the cultivar 'Blue Enchantment' and don't know where to plant it in my beds. I need to know if it climbs or spreads. I don't see where plantfiles mentions if it does. Does anyone have any advise for me?
I'm not sure where it fits in family wise with the morning glories, it is a different genus for sure. Also called bush type morning glory.
I grew the Enchantment mix in a pot last year. Stayed about a foot tall - maybe it will be a bit taller in the ground. It doesn't climb, spread? - well, about as much as a full size zinnia or marigold I would say.
When you're in PlantFiles, type Convolvulus in the Genus line and it will pop up a number of different morning glories. (I'm no morning glory expert, but I just started a bunch of them and some of them are convolvulus and others are ipomoea).
Bigcityal, if it grows up at a foot tall or even a little taller, that helps me alot in de4ciding where to plant it. I really didn't need a spreader or climber in the particular bed I was hoping for..
Thanks too, Joanne, for the tip on getting around in plantfiles. I had only been use to keying a word in the common name line.
Your welcome. I have grown plenty of regular morning glories and although I love the flowers - they reseed like crazy and are a lot of work to clean the vines off every year. I have Enchantment Mix again for this year and the package says 14" high and 15" wide.
I'll post this pic for the 50th time, it was one of my favorites from last year.
