Flowering Season
Botanical Name: Vinca minor 'Variegata'
Deciduous/ Evergreen: Evergreen
Growth Rate: Moderate
Special Feature: Deer Resistant, Shade Loving
Foliage Color: Variegated
Flower Attribute: Showy Flowers
Bloom Time: Spring
Flower Color: Blue
Design Ideas: The variegated foliage of this trailer makes it light up the shade as it covers the ground. It looks fine on shady banks or trailing over the side of a container or low retaining wall.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a groundcover, space plants 5 ft. apart, (closer for faster coverage). Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.

History

Vinca was commonly used by the Romans and later during the Middle Ages to create garlands for those soon to be executed, probably because vinca wilts very quickly after being cut.
