inca Minor Periwinkle Plant


Vinca Minor Periwinkle is excellent for steep hills or sloping areas where soil erosion is an issue. This vine is also perfect for planting under garden plants to keep weeds from overgrowing the plants. No other vine is quite like the minor vinca vine. It can cover an area in a couple growing seasons, and It also is an evergreen vine with delicate lavender flowers in early spring. It can even tolerate drought and live well in standing water. Have you ever heard of creeping myrtle? What about periwinkle? Or perhaps just myrtle vines? All these are the vinca minor.

Vinca Minor is lush and glossy with a beautiful color in spring and summer


The best part about these vines is their ability to choke out other weeds due to them having quite a mass of fiber roots. These vines always create a very gorgeous and spectacular ground cover as they grow in all areas.

They can also survive if planted in large containers to decorate porches, patios, and even pool areas during the summer months. These groundcovers are simple and easy to grow and cover all gardens in bright and brilliant color as they provide beautiful blooms. Vinca Minor (also known as periwinkle, dwarf periwinkle, myrtle, and creeping myrtle) is a flowering species originating in parts of Europe and southwestern Asia. This trailing subshrub provides excellent ground cover, and is remarkably hardy, with waxy hunter-green leaves and trumpet-shaped violet blossoms. The leaves are evergreen, while the flowers bloom from early spring through autumn. It is rarely disturbed by either pests, disease or weather, and is known to be deer-resistant.

In the American south, Vinca Minor was often chosen for grave sites because of their long-lasting qualities and maybe know as graveyard vines because it enjoys the sloping hill surrounding websites where there are little traffic and movement. Even today, loyal bunches of this beautiful plant usually indicate forgotten places, long after the original marker has disappeared.

Vinca Minor thrives in partial sun or shaded areas (Periwinkle)
