Periwinkle Plant is a species of flowering plant and a low-growing, evergreen perennial. It spreads rapidly through its healthy underground root network. It grows best in almost all lighting conditions but prefers filtered sunshine in the U.S.D.A. plant hardiness zones 4 to 8.
Vinca Minor is versatile and tolerant of various growing conditions, making it an excellent choice for areas where other plants might struggle to survive. It is low maintenance and easy to care for, making it a popular choice for ground cover, natural areas, rock gardens, or edging at sidewalks or paths. You can also train them to climb; they are lovely on a fence, trellis, or arbor.
They are native to Europe and North Africa but arrived in North America in the 1700s. It has centuries of history in America and is well-suited to our climate conditions.
Periwinkle Plants Will Add Amazing Blue to Purple Tones to Your Garden
The foliage consists of oval, glossy green leaves with a low, creeping growth habit.
The flowers are usually a deep blue, as the name suggests. However, they may occasionally present as lavender, mauve, or a lovely light purple. The flowers have five petals that form a distinct cup shape and bloom from late spring to early summer.
Vinca minor flowers have a light, delicate scent that is uniquely sweet and earthy with an herbal note. It is subtle and not overpowering. The fragrance is most noticeable in the early morning when the flowers have just opened for the day.
Taking care of Vinca Minor is easy. Here are some tips for keeping them healthy and happy:
- Water your Vinca Minor plants regularly; they need about 1" weekly watering. However, it's also worth noting that they are heat- and drought-resistant and will withstand occasional dry spells.
- Fertilize your plants with a balanced fertilizer in the spring and fall to keep them growing strong and lush.
- Prune the plants, if desired.
