Convolvulus oleifolius
« on: July 04, 2021, 12:38:35 AM »
There are many references to MGS members and their willingness to share plants and seed etc. But there are other ways in which we help each other to try new plants. I am sure it was John J who once wrote on these pages that the flowers of C oleifolius outlast those of C cneorum. I was inspired to try it and got seed from Chantal and the MGS seed exchange (a marvellous service) last year. As a result, I now have 2 young plants and one produced its first flower this week.

Thanks John :-)
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.
