Description


A purple flowered member of the well-known and much-loved Lesser Periwinkle family, Vinca minor Atropurpurea boasts beautiful, crisp white, single, star-shaped blooms covering neat, ground hugging mats of glossy foliage in spring, summer and autumn. Outstanding for injecting colour into often difficult dry areas. Fabulous planted under trees and shrubs, on banks and slopes, or trailing over the edges of containers and walls. Happy grown in coastal areas. Vinca minor are fantastic, floriferous perennials with long prostrate stems creating dense carpets of evergreen, broad-leaved groundcover. Excellent for suppressing weeds whilst keeping the soil beneath protected from hot summer sun or excessing winter cold. The name Vinca derives from the latin word vincire which means to bind or to fetter, probably referring to the ability to hold shifting ground together using the long runners. Given the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society for outstanding performance in the garden, Vinca minor Atropurpurea prefers to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun, part shade or full shade. Reaching 30cm tall, she will spread to 60cm. Being fully hardy perennials, Vinca thrive outside with no winter protection required.
