This plant gives you the best value for your money. The contrast of green and purple are simply amazing.
The name fits because they are low growing and have lots of color to them.

Vinca Major – Big Leaf Periwinkle
Greater Periwinkle, also known as bigleaf periwinkle, is a beautiful plant, especially when it shows its blue/violet flowers. This plant will bloom in spring and can even bloom until the first frost. This plant will work well as a ground cover because it will spread rather quickly. This perennial can help with soil erosion problems. It will have dark green leaves when growing. It can become as tall as 36 inches and can do great in partial shade. This plant prefers well-drained, fertile soils.
Greater Periwinkle is commonly known as bigleaf periwinkle
This look could add some much-needed color to the region with contrasting green foliage and blue-purple or lavender flowers. It is excellent for keeping erosion in check. Most frequently seen as garden ground cover, it is rightly named for the color of its blooms. Flowers display themselves from April to May. Despite its color namesake, it is obtainable in a variety of colors and slightly different plants. The type and color of your choice should be based on the needs of a particular landscape. Vinca major is elementary to grow, and the biggest concern that should arise is how to keep it under control.
Greater Periwinkle grows much more vigorously than its smaller version, the vinca minor. As long as the plant is in the best conditions, it should need very little care once it grows. As with most gardens, weeds may need to be removed until the vinca major grows enough to shade out any likely new growth of the plants so that weeds shouldn’t be a bother anymore. Even though many soil and sunlight settings are accepted, acidic soil in a partial shade location is best.
Greater Periwinkle vine stays green year round but may become leaves may become discolored or even burnt if it receives too much sunlight. It is less accepting of colder temperatures than its smaller version. It is a very vigorous grower. Most plants don’t grow any taller than four inches making it a perfect as a groundcover. Due to its persistent nature, it should not be planted close to anything that, to the plant, is fair game for being used as a support for its growth.
Vinca Major can grow on hillsides and steep banks where other plants have failed to develop - Big Leaf Periwinkle is also an evergreen
