They just love the sun.

2 plants for large pot

Artjak you are in for a summer treat.
If you have trouble getting convolvulous check out perhill nurseries. Cheap, reliable and good
If your pot is fairly big and your agapanthus not likely to fill it this season why not add a couple of linum perenne Blue Sapphyr between convolvulous and agapanthus.
A beautiful, swaying sky blue on 30 cm glaucous foliage. I love this plant.
Perhill nurseries sell this too
............not pushing perhill by the way. I get a lot of small gems like this from them that's all.
Good luck artjak

They're weeds down here for me too.
Think i would pot them up....they are likely to be very small....keep them warm and watered until strong green shoots emerge. Use compost.
My favourite is lucifer.....brilliant how-stopping colour

For me, agapanthus and convolvulous mauritamica.
Perfect together liking same conditions
If you haven't grown this hardy perennial convolvulous then check it out. Velvety blue cascading flowers all summer
