Blue Daze Evolvulus has blue-green, velvety foliage with dainty blue flowers. The blooms will be continuous from spring until the first frost of fall. They open up in the morning and close up in the evening or on cloudy days.
Evolvulus spreads and mounds rather than trails. Use it as a border plant or anywhere that you would like a dense ground cover. Once established, it really takes hold and can be drought tolerant. The 1 inch, blue blooms attract butterflies. This is yet another deer resistant plant for areas where these beautiful, yet pesky, animals might pass through.
