What is this pink angiosperm photographed in Morocco in spring? The diameter of the flower is about 2 cm. The petals are fused. The plant is crawling and did not have any erect parts. enter image description here

This is a species of morning glory (fairly obvious from the flower). It is a member of the angiosperm family Convolvulaceae. The flower and the leaves together identify it as Convolvulus althaeoides. It is a Mediterranean native. Links provided.
