Flowers 1–3; peduncles 10–60 mm long; pedicels 5–20 mm long, straight or sinuate in fruit, shorter than peduncles; bracteoles linear to subulate, 1–3 mm long; sepals obovate, oblong or elliptic, 4.5–7 mm long, sparsely to moderately hairy; corolla funnel-shaped, 7–15 mm long, pink or mauve with a greenish throat. Capsule globose to globose-ovoid, 5.5–6.5 mm diam., style-base persistent; seeds finely punctate, bearing numerous small irregular tubercles. Flowers late spring to early autumn.
EGU. All states. Known with certainty in Victoria only from a recent collection in dry shrubland on limestone geology near Omeo.
All native Convolvulus species were included in C. erubescens prior to Johnson's revision (Austrobaileya 6:1-39, 2001). Mapped Victorian records other than that from near Omeo derive from specimens of dubious origin or identity that are not held at the National Herbarium of Victoria.
