Description

Vinca minor 'Illumination' is particularly striking, with gold-splashed foliage, paired with cobalt-blue flowers. This vigorous, carpeting shrub will thrive in virtually any garden position, from sun to deep shade. Its colourful foliage makes it especially useful for brightening dark corners.

Vinca minor is less vigorous than its larger cousin Vinca major, making it easier to confine to its allotted space. Periwinkle plants are easy to grow, flowering relentlessly from spring to autumn. A popular choice for landscaping and low-maintenance gardens. Height: 20cm (8") Spread: 50cm (19").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Vinca plants in borders outdoors in 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 plants require only occasional attention. Pruning Periwinkle is best undertaken in spring when they can be cut back hard to restrict their growth. Caution: harmful if eaten.
