Convolvulus sabatius (Bindweed)

Bindweed, Blue Rock Bindweed, Ground Morning Glory, Convolvulus mauritanicus, Convolvulus sabatius subsp. mauritanicus


Native to the Mediterranean region, Convolvulus sabatius (Bindweed or Ground Morning Glory) is a luscious, trailing, woody-based perennial noted for its endless production of widely funnel-shaped, lavender-blue flowers, 1-2 in. across (2-5 cm), throughout the year in mild winter areas, from early summer to early fall elsewhere. Hugging the ground, this charming groundcover enjoys small, oval soft gray-green leaves which are evergreen where hardy. Although the top growth may be killed by frost, Ground Morning Glory will re-sprout from its base the following year. Its tumbling habit makes it ideal for raised beds, hanging baskets or containers.

  • Awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Grows up to 4-6 in. tall (10-15 cm) with a spread of 18-24 in. (45-60 cm).
  • Easily grown in gritty, well-drained soils, with occasional watering in full sun to light shade. Provide a sheltered location. Tolerates alkaline soil and will grow in clay soil so long as it drains properly and is not over watered. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Great for beds and borders, Mediterranean gardens, cottage gardens, city gardens, rock gardens or containers. Great for edging too.
  • Virtually disease free.
  • Propagate by seed or softwood cuttings
  • Trim back plants to prevent from getting too woody and to maintain size.
