Bowles Myrtle - Periwinkle/Vinca - Hardy Groundcover - Gallon Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
Vinca minor, also known as Common Periwinkle, Periwinkle, and Myrtle, a plant species originally native to parts of central and southern Europe. Commonly used and referred to as a 'groundcover,' Vinca minor is often used to cover bare places of ground and is dense in its nature of growth. It has a habit that often chokes out competing plants and weeds. Vinca minor tends to bloom throughout the spring and summer months. Vinca Bowles sports attractive shades of deep lilac overlapping petals nestled in glossy dark green, darkly veined leaves. Rooting along its vining offshoots, it forms a dense, vigorously spreading carpet. The 'Bowles' variety has larger and glossier leaves than other Vinca, as well as more numerous flowers.
Vinca are evergreen groundcovers. Good for bank stabilization and erosion control. Can escape into the woods, so please plant responsibly. Some winter protection may be needed in colder zones.
