Description

If you are looking for a plant that will bloom all summer long, then look no further than Lesser Periwinkle. One of the most resilient plants that you can buy, this vigorous, low grow shrub will grow happily in nearly any garden position, from full sun to dark, shady corners.

Vinca minor is perfect for those with small gardens, as it is far less invasive than Vinca major (Greater Periwinkle). When used as groundcover, the deep green, evergreen foliage will help to conquer weeds, meaning less work for you! Pretty star-shaped blue flowers are borne from May to October, adding a splash of colour to your garden. This Lesser Periwinkle variety is ideal for filling difficult, shady areas where nothing else will grow. Height: 20cm (8") Spread: 30cm (12").

How to Grow
Plant out Vinca minor 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.
More Info
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.
