Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting added this to Great Design Plant: Convolvulus Cneorum
How to use it. Plant bush morning glory in areas that you frequent in the morning, where you can enjoy the glow from the silvery foliage and white flowers. The relative short stature of this plant, along with its spreading growth habit, makes it suitable for planting under trees that provide light shade. Because of its affinity for well-drained soils, it also does well in raised beds and containers. This plant can handle the heat while still looking great, so consider it for areas around your patio, courtyard or pool that receive hot, reflected sun. The silvery foliage makes bush morning glory the perfect partner for plants with darker foliage, such as autumn sage (Salvia greggii), Cleveland sage (Salvia clevelandii), ‘Little John’ bottlebrush (Callistemon viminalis ‘Little John’), firecracker penstemon (Penstemon eatonii) and Goodding’s verbena (Glandularia gooddingii).
