ID this plant?

I planted this, but I forget what it is and didn't write it down! It is thriving here and I love the silvery foliage, and now the pretty white flowers. I might want to get more, if someone can refresh my memory on what it is!

Looks to me like bush morning glory Convolvulus if the flowers have yellow centers.

You're right the flowers do have yellow centers and look like morning glories, interesting! I bought the plant much smaller for its foliage, the flowers were a surprise!

It you cut it back after flowering it will stay more dense and not get so scraggly

I kinda like it scaggly and "au natural" :) Maybe I'll give it a tiny trim.

If you like silver/gray folaige then take a look at this striking beauty. It does this every spring.
Actually it doesn't photograph well in bright light, but its definately a focal point right now.
I thin it every other year and comes back like crazy.
Bush Germander teucrium fruticana Azureum. I just bought 3 more for another area.
I like the silver gray also or textured plants, not just plain ol green.
I had a bush morning glory but took it out and can't remember for sure why,
but I think I wanted something taller.
But I have an area for one now...hmmm...

Campanula UK Z8

Convolvulous Cneorum - likes a haircut in spring and a nice gritty soil.

gobluedjm, I have 2 of those as well - love them!

Here's my front walkway border garden today

This is what it looked like last June when we bought the place

This was last Sept, after I planted all the perennials

They have filled in nicely!
