Convolvulus 'Full Moon' is a specially selected low mounding, ground cover perennial which carries larger flowers than normally found in this species. In addition it has a more vigorous growth habit forming a neat and dense mat ideal for quick results in barren or drought prone garden areas.

The soft lilac-blue flowers open by unfurling 'pleats' from the tubular flower
bud. They first begin appearing from late spring and will continue right
through to autumn making this ground cover perennial a very worthwhile addition
to the flower border.

Convolvulus 'Full Moon' enjoys an open, sunny location with good drainage. Although tolerant of a wide variety of soil types best performance will be achieved in a fertile organic soil. Hardy to a minimum temperature of -5ºc. Regular pruning is recommended to encourage a dense habit and to encourage further flower production.

An application of slow release fertiliser during spring would also be beneficial
to overall performance. Ideal as a trailing ground cover in borders, over walls
or for container gardening.
