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.
