Convolvulus cneorum is a very hardy evergreen shrub. It has silvery-grey leaves which are quite silky to touch. It produces masses of pinkish flower buds that open into single white flowers from mid spring into summer.

Silver bush can be used in multiple situations. Its a great choice for borders and rockeries, cottage gardens and can be grown in containers.

Performs best in moist well drained soil. Can be grown in full sun and part shade. Is tolerant of dry periods once its established. By removing spent flowers, the flowering time can be increased.
