This member of the Convolvulaceae family was given this name by Johannes Gottfried Hallier in 1893. It is found in central Africa, growing in sandy or other well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The  caudex can grow to six centimetres in diameter while the branches, laying flat on the ground grow to 40 centimetres or more. The flowers are pinkish to Mauve with a darker centre.

The name; blepharophylla is Latin for "with fringed leaves", referring to the ciliate margins.
