Vinca minor (Large Plant)

Lesser Periwinkle, Lady's Flower, Running Myrtle

Hardy Shrub

Lesser Periwinkle is one of the toughest plants money can buy, producing plants that flower relentlessly throughout the summer. Periwinkle is a vigorous, low growing shrub which thrives in almost any garden position, from full sun to the darkest, shady corners.

The ground-covering stems of this plant provide evergreen, dark green foliage that can help to beat the weeds, with inky blue flowers from May to October. Unlike Vinca major which is highly invasive, Vinca minor are far less invasive and are recommended for small gardens. Perfect for filling those tricky areas of the garden where little else grows. Height: 20cm (8") Spread: 30cm (12").

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.
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.
