It's made for arid gardens.
In rock gardens, on slopes, or along driveways, use bush morning glory with low-growing, spreading perennials such as Convolvulus mauritanicus, which has gray-green foliage with lavender blue flowers in summer; trailing gazania (G. uniflora, often sold as G. leucolaena), whose flowers range from white or yellow to bronze; and Peruvian verbena, with red, pink, white, or purplish flowers.
In full sun, bush morning glory stays 18 inches tall; in filtered shade, it can reach 2 to 4 feet. It needs light, fast-draining soil. Go easy on watering, especially in the summer. Feed sparsely, if at all.
