Evolvulus glomeratus "Blue Daze"


Scientific name:  Evolvulus glomeratus
Common name:  Blue Daze, Hawaiian Blue Eyes
Family: Convovulaceae

Origin: Brazil
Category: Tropical tender perennial plant

Photo taken at : My home garden


Notes:
An ever-flowering ornamental plant with pretty little blue flowers suitable for growing in containers or on the ground. Looks good in hanging baskets and great ground covers. The flowers are showy but last less than a day. They open at dawn and close by early afternoon.Very good choice if you are looking for 'true blue' flowers to complete your flower beds and for mixed borders. It has wiry stems and the leaves are velvety soft and grey-green in colour. Grow in sandy soil, water regularly but overwatering may kill the plant. It can withstand droughts but misting may be needed when weather gets too warm and dry. Prefer acidic medium, therefore occassionally add some used coffee grounds to the soil. The plant can last for 2-3 years before it dies back. Propagation: cut some twigs and plant in soil.

  1. I grow them in big swathes. They do not like it wet. I never get sick of them I am always enchanted by their long flowering time and the cheerful, sky blue flowers.
