Description
Variegated leaves with dainty yellow margins make an attractive background for the large violet blooms of this Lesser Periwinkle. The creeping stems spread quickly to create superb evergreen groundcover. Vinca minor 'Ralph Shugert' is tough and resilient, thriving in virtually any garden position, from full sun to those tricky shaded spots beneath trees and shrubs. This RHS AGM variety is a colourful, low maintenance hardy shrub for rockeries, woodlands and cottage garden borders. Height: 20cm (8”) Spread: 60cm (24”).

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.
