Vinca minor

 

Vinca minor is an evergreen vine that will give your garden an elegant touch of lively, rich violet or purple set against spectacular large, green leaves.TN Nursery suggests Vinca minor for use primarily as a ground cover plant; however, you may also train it to climb a trellis gracefully with relative ease.

 

Vinca minor is an Asian native species. Europeans adopted the plant for its graceful charm and beauty and brought it to the New World in Colonial Era.

 

The plant is evergreen in moderate temperatures, providing you with lush green foliage even when so many other species enter winter dormancy–a welcome sight in the winter garden. It loves partial and complete shade but will tolerate some sunshine.

 

Vinca minors classic charm

 

Vinca minor is a flowering plant with a low, sprawling habit. It typically grows between three and six inches tall and about eighteen inches to three feet wide.

Its stems root at their joints, so it spreads quickly. It covers an empty spot in your garden with relative speed.

 

The delicate flowers blossom in the middle to late spring and reappear randomly throughout the year. The common name is periwinkle, which refers to the blue-violet to purple blossoms. The petals are small, flat, elliptic, and bear on a slender stalk.

 

Vinca minor has a rustic charm that makes you think of a home in the countryside, with lazy vine plants rambling through the garden. That whimsical impression makes this plant a favorite among many gardeners.

 

 

Two Other Important Reasons to Try Vinca minor

 

Although many plant Vinca minor for cosmetic reasons, here are a couple more reasons to plant it.

 

Vinca minor discourages weeds as it takes root in your garden. It outcompetes the weeds for nutrition and will eventually choke them out. This growth means you will spend less time pulling weeds from your flower beds, tending to more enjoyable gardening tasks instead.

 

Also, Vinca minor is drought-tolerant. If you live in an area experiencing frequent watering restrictions but receive relatively decent rainfall, Vinca minor will be an excellent choice.
