The Q&A Archives: Self-seeding Convolvulus

Question: I was wondering if the convolvulus "Star of Yelta" is a self seeding annual? I planted it in a container this year and it's really taking off but was wondering if I should go ahead and plant it in the ground to have it reseed for next spring?

Answer: Convolvulus as a group are aggressive self seeders. I am not familiar with that particular variety, so if it is a hybrid be aware that it may not produce viable seed, or the offspring may not match the parents. In either case, it will make seed whether it is planted in a container or in the ground. If you wish to grow it in the garden from seed, simply harvest some seeds as they reach maturity and sprinkle them where you would like them to be next year.

Good luck with your seeds!
