Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
Vinca major 'Variegata' certainly lives up to its name, with outstanding evergreen variegated foliage; each deep green leaf features a fabulous contrasting creamy white margin. Also known as Variegated Greater Periwinkle, this plant is just as vigorous as Vinca minor but less aggressive. Used as a groundcover perennial, this variety is the ideal choice for gardeners with large areas of ground to cover, as well as those with sloping banks that are tricky to mow and maintain. The large, violet-blue flowers will add a splash of spring colour to your garden. For the very best blooms, grow in full sun, however Vinca major 'Variegata' will grow almost anywhere on many different soil types. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 75cm (30").

Feed and water Vinca plants regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Vinca require only occasional attention. Pruning Periwinkle is best undertaken in spring when they can be cut back hard to restrict their growth.
Plant out Vinca major into any moist, well drained soil. Periwinkle is a particularly tough plant and will thrive in any garden position, provided that the soil isn't dry.
