Description

Creeping Myrtle

Creeping Myrtle – Vinca Minor is a rapidly growing evergreen runner. It produces blue, star-like flowers about one-inch in width, which bloom for only one month in the spring. Creeping Myrtle gets its name from the ability to sneak across the ground at an ever-expanding pace.

Creeping Myrtle is a ground covering plant that makes a beautiful addition to any home. Notable for its capacity to take root anywhere that a stem touches ground, this plant continues to grow until the season ends. If it is cut back to four inches in early spring new growth will be rapidly stimulated. Typically this plant grows from 4 - 8 inches, but many variations can increase from 6 -12 inches in height. This vining plant is famous for ground cover since it propagates quickly and is usually drought-tolerant and deer-resistant. It is also planted a lot around trees and shady flower beds. Even after it has finished blooming for the year, it stays a lovely green for year-round coverage.

Creeping Myrtle is an evergreen perennial.


Creeping myrtle is an evergreen perennial that spreads from shallow nodes in the ground. In the spring, this plant is one of the first vines to bloom. The creeping myrtle has a profusion of small, periwinkle flowers that come in various shades of purple or white. Rabbits usually avoid eating its blossoms. Creeping myrtle is also perfect for hillsides to add beauty and to discourage erosion. Creeping Myrtle is a plant that takes up a lot of room. It is ideal for areas that have open spaces. This is a plant that is great for yards where other flowers won’t grow. Fast growing, this plant will take root and spread over the area in no time. It has a lavender flower that contrasts well with the dark green leaves.

Creeping Myrtle blooms in the spring and summer.


The flower blooms in the spring and summer, making it an excellent plant to blend with daisies and daffodils. There is little care involved with this plant. Only water it every few days, and make sure you keep the undergrowth cut out so that it looks healthy.
