Product Description

Periwinkle Plants are a Fast Spreading Ground Cover

 

Vinca Minor is also known as common periwinkle, dwarf periwinkle, lesser periwinkle, and creeping myrtle. This plant is a member of the Apocynaceae family and is native to Eastern Europe. This perennial herb is most often used as a ground cover because it is fast spreading and resistant to wildlife, such as deer. 

 Periwinkle Plants are Best Known for their Hardy Spring and Summer Blooms

 This ground cover plant is best known for its lush, green foliage and flowers during the spring and summer. The color depends upon the variety but can include blue, white, and pink. The USDA hardiness zones recommended for this plant are 4 to 9 and grow best in well-drained soils. When planted 4 to 6 inches apart, this plant will form a thick ground cover and be approximately 4 to 6 feet off the ground when fully mature. It also grows best if pruned back during the spring because it comes back very quickly. 

  Vinca Minor is an excellent choice for any area of the garden that needs some coverage. It is also a good option for areas near pathways and concrete porches. It is also helpful in controlling erosion and thrives on sloping hillsides.

Periwinkle bears small blue flowers and stretches moderately fast across forest floors. This plant grows best in full sun but can also thrive in shaded areas. Being a ground cover plant, Periwinkle grows only three to six inches tall but can climb out several feet a year in rich, well-drained soil. This plant is a beautiful ground cover. However, it does need some upkeep to stop it from taking over your garden.
