With pretty pink, conical flowers, with an undulating edge, Convolvulus altheodes  is a common plant of stony ground.  They are one of few plants whose flowers persist well into the summer months. The leaves are bright green, hairy and deeply cut. The lower leaves are shaped like those of mallow (Malva sivestris), and upper leaves more deeply cut into narrow lobes. They have long twisting stems, which spread horizontally or clamber up the stems of surrounding vegetation.
