Vinca minor – Periwinkle, Creeping Myrtle, Myrtle
Vinca minor (Periwinkle) is native throughout the Eastern parts of the United States. A 1-2 inch 5-petal lavender-blue flower blooms in spring on the dark green ground cover. It is a trailing vine with opposite thick elliptical leaves. It can have a solid dark green leaf or a variegated leaf color. Variegated means a leaf has different colors and not one solid color. It is hardy zones 4-8 and an origin of Europe. A plant that is easy for beginner gardeners to include in a shade garden. It is easy to grow and easy to maintain, especially if kept within a boundary. It is adaptable to most pH levels. It prefers shade. It can tolerate deep shade to partially sunny locations, but not in hot, full sun areas. It is drought tolerant due to the thick leaves that protect the soil from drying out. It likes a well-drained compost-rich woodland soil. It can spread from the rhizomes to cover areas at a medium to fast pace. It is 3-6 inches tall with a spread of 1-2 feet but can spread further if the soil is soft and luxurious. It provides a thick ground cover in shadier areas where soil erosion problems exist. Easy to propagate and add to other gardens. Homeowners use it for hard to maintain areas. It adds an attractive appeal to the base of trees and around rocks. It is a perfect choice to apply for a shady area that needs to be redesigned. Patio pavers beneath a wrought iron bench will provide a place to sit. Surround it with short walls covered in Periwinkle. The Periwinkle will cover edges of walls slightly and keep it contained to the new garden area. Add statues and planters full of bright colored flowers to complete a beautiful shade garden.
Big Leaf Periwinkle
Native to the Western Mediterranean, the Big Leaf Periwinkle is an effective and efficient ground cover. It features broad hairless leaves and bold blue or purple pinwheel flowers about the size of an American quarter. This evergreen to semi-evergreen plant is easy to grow, spreads quickly, and thrives equally well in sun or deep shade. Ideal for covering large sloped areas and other problem spots, this drought-resistant plant boasts glossy elliptical, triangular, or heart-shaped leaves. Dark green or variegated, leaves are opposite and add significantly to the plant's aesthetic appeal. The Big Leaf Periwinkle grows well in a variety of soils, including those containing clay or sand. This plant needs only occasional deep watering. Rainfall is generally sufficient for its growth. Great at choking out unwanted weeds, this plant is fast growing. It can grow to 6.6 feet in length, with its glossy but leathery leaves measuring 1.5 to 2.5 inches long. The vine's flowers have five petals, and they grow individually on stalks that originate in the leaf node. The Big Leaf Periwinkle's charming flowers are vibrant and eyecatching, and they range in color from blue to violet with a white base. This plant is capable of growing up to 12 inches tall, but it tends to spread outward rather than grow upward. Introduced to the United States from Europe in the 18th century, this winding plant is still commonly chosen by gardeners for use as a decorative ground cover. Because it spreads so quickly and efficiently, the Big Leaf Periwinkle is considered a useful species for controlling soil erosion, for carpeting abundant wide open spaces and slopes, and for filling in stubborn spots under trees and bushes. When planted in rock gardens, this pretty evergreen ground cover is a beautiful complement for several other species, including creeping phlox and lavender.
An unsurpassed ground cover, Ajuga reptans, or bugleweed, spreads out into thick mats of purple, bronze, deep green, red cream white and pink leaves that are topped by whorled blue, violet, pink or white flowers in the late spring and early summer. The plant is not only beautiful but suppresses weeds and can substitute for a grass lawn. Bugleweed varieties can thrive in full sun to full shade.
Ajuga reptans grows to about one half to three-quarters of a foot high, with a spread of nearly a half a foot to afoot. It’s a perennial, which means it comes back year after year. Once established, it does not need pampering but needs an average amount of watering. It can tolerate deer and rabbits and can be planted around black walnut, a tree that sends out an acid around it that often poisons competing plants.
Bugleweed prefers well-drained soil that’s evenly moist, full of humus and compost and drains well, though it can tolerate soil that’s on the dry side. The gardener should avoid land that’s heavy and soggy. Though it does well in deep shade, planting bugleweed in a place that gets sunlight for at least a few hours a day will bring out the delightful colors of the foliage. The plant has a vast range when it comes to the climate and does well in hardiness zones 3 to 10, which ranges from Maine down to Florida. If it’s grown in an environment as hot and humid as Florida’s, the gardener should make sure that the air circulation is good.
After flowering, the plant can be cut all the way back or even mowed on a high setting. When the mats become overcrowded, they can be divided between the spring or the fall. Besides being a ground cover, ajuga reptant is excellent for rock gardens and containers and can be planted on slopes and beneath trees and shrubs.
