comfy - No. They die quickly with cold, soggy weather.

Hammerhugger - Hardy to 10 degrees Fahrenheit so check your local weather.

Does very well in low, hot desert with morning sun or even light shade under well-pruned mesquites.

Can suddenly die back if it gets overwatered.

I think one thing to mention is that it is called Convolvulus for a reason. This plant is poisonous .. ie causes convulsions. It may be pretty but a species of it was all over the LA highway system and years ago they removed it because of liability reasons.
