Convolvulus elegantissimus is widespread in Greece, growing in a variety of dry habitats from sea level to c. 1600 m. It resembles C. althaeoides and has been regarded as a subspecies of the latter, but is normally distinct, differing in the slender habit, silvery-sericeous leaves (the upper deeply divided into linear segments) and uniformly rose-pink corolla.
