It’s easy to see why Convolvulus cneorum is more commonly known as the Silver Bush, with its striking silvery-grey, silky evergreen foliage making it look quite distinct from other garden plants.
During July and August, pink buds appear all over the plant, opening into pure white, trumpet shaped flowers with pale yellow centres that can be 4cm across. A native of the western Mediterranean, Convolvulus brings a touch of the exotic to your garden, whilst being perfectly hardy in the UK.
Preferring well drained soil and a sunny location, Convolvulus with thrive in beds and borders, and makes a wonderful, eye-catching specimen plant in a patio container, especially if you choose a darkly coloured one to really set off the silvery leaves and white flowers to perfection.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
