Evolvulus

(to unroll, because not twining as in Convolvulus). Convolvulaceae. Prostrate or erect annual or perennial herbs or sub-shrubs, rarely planted or grown in greenhouses. The genus differs from Convolvulus in having 2 styles 2-cleft, stigmas always narrow, corolla often open or rotate, and not twining: leaves entire, small: flowers small, in summer and autumn; sepals 5, the calyx not bracted at base; corolla blue, rose or white, 5-angled or shortly 5-lobed. The species are about 80; in warm regions, several in the U. S. E. purpuro-coeruleus, Hook., of Jamaica, appears to be the only species prominently mentioned horticulturally, and this is seldom planted: 1-2 ft., woody at base: leaves small, lanceolate-acute: flowers purplish, terminal, the corolla rotate, white-centered and purple-rayed.
