The Ground Morning Glory, scientifically known as Convolvulus sabatius (formerly known as Convolvulus mauritanicus), is a trailing perennial plant native to the Mediterranean region. It is cherished for its cascading habit, vibrant blooms, and versatility in various garden settings. While it is a perennial in its native habitat and other warm climates, it is often grown as an annual in regions that experience frost.

Growing to about 6 to 12 inches tall with a spread of 1 to 2 feet, the Ground Morning Glory features lush, green foliage and a profusion of sky blue, lavender, or purple flowers that bloom from late spring until fall. The trumpet-shaped flowers open in the morning and close in the afternoon, hence the common name "morning glory."

Adapted to full sun, Convolvulus sabatius thrives in well-draining soil and is moderately drought-tolerant once established. It prefers regular watering but can withstand brief periods of dryness. For optimal flowering, it is recommended to plant it in a location where it will receive ample sunlight.

In landscaping, the Ground Morning Glory is often used in hanging baskets, containers, and window boxes, where its trailing vines can spill over the edges, creating a lush, overflowing effect. It is also effective as a ground cover in sunny borders or cascading over walls and terraces, adding texture and color to the garden landscape.

Overall, the Ground Morning Glory is a low-maintenance and visually appealing plant, ideal for adding long-lasting color and ground cover to sunny garden areas. Its easy care, adaptability, and continuous bloom make it a popular choice for gardeners seeking to create vibrant and dynamic outdoor spaces.
