VINCA

Commonly known as Periwinkle, Trailing myrtle

All Flower MAR-SEPT

The habit of stems taking root where they touch the ground gives the periwinkle its ability to rapidly cover bare soil. In some cases it can be invasive but can provide spots of flower colour in most months of the year.

Genus of 5 species of slender-stemmed, evergreen subshrubs and herbaceous perennials from woodland in Europe, North Africa and Central Asia.

V. minor, lesser periwinkle, is probably native to southern England.

  • Ground cover - These plants are typically low growing and spread quickly to inhibit weed growth on areas of bare soil
  • Full sun - for best flowering
  • Partial shade
