Convolvulus sabatius 'Moroccan Beauty' PP15,104 (Blue Casbah Morning Glory) - This is an improved form of the ground morning glory with a compact growth and a very prostrate habit. Like the species it is a trailing groundcover with soft dark green rounded leaves but it grows more flat to the ground with denser foliage. Light violet-blue flower appear on this plant throughout the year in areas with mild winters, otherwise the bloom period is from spring through fall. Plant in full sun to light shade with well-drained soil and occasional water. It is hardy to about 15-20 degrees F. This plant was discovered by Steven Eggleton in a seed crop of Convolvulus sabatius 'Full Moon' in Victoria, Australia. The selected seedling exhibited a uniquely dense and prostrate habit with short internodes. The plant received a U.S. Patent in August 2004 and is being marketed in the US by PlantHaven. EuroAmerican Propagators and Proven Winners haven chosen to market this plant under the name Blue Casbah. We grew this plant from 2005 until 2008.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it.
