Convolvulus Cneorum Silver Bush


(Convolvulus cneorum) 


A common plant in Australian gardens, Convolvulus cneorum is well known for its silky silver foliage and masses of white flowers. It is an easy-care plant that requires little water.


The white saucer shaped flowers appear profusely from spring to autumn.


Full sun and free draining soil will give best results. Plant in a low maintenance or Mediterranean style garden. Can be used as an informal low hedge or path edging.


Incorporate grit if the soil is prone to water logging as the plant does not like a wet root zone. Prune by a quarter after flowering to promote bushiness.


Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed will keep it looking its best.
