Vinca minor Periwinkle, also known as Lesser Periwinkle or Dwarf Periwinkle, is a popular groundcover plant that is native to Europe and Asia. It is a vigorous, evergreen perennial with glossy dark green leaves and large lavender blue flowers from mid-spring to early summer. The flowers continue to bloom intermittently throughout summer into fall, making Vinca minor a valuable addition to any garden.

Vinca minor is a very versatile plant and can be grown in a variety of conditions. It is tolerant of full sun to full shade, but prefers partial sun. It is also tolerant of drought and poor soil conditions, making it a great choice for low-maintenance gardens.

Vinca minor is a fast-growing groundcover and can quickly spread to form a dense mat of foliage. This makes it an excellent choice for suppressing weeds and preventing erosion. Vinca minor is also deer resistant, making it a good choice for areas with deer problems.

Vinca minor is a relatively low-maintenance plant. It requires very little water, especially once established. It is also relatively pest and disease free. However, it is important to remove any dead or diseased foliage to prevent the spread of disease.

Vinca minor can be propagated by division in spring or autumn, or by semi-hardwood cuttings in summer. It is also easy to transplant, making it a great choice for moving around in the garden.

Here are some tips for growing and caring for Vinca minor Periwinkle:

  • Plant Vinca minor in moist, well-drained soil.
  • Water Vinca minor regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize Vinca minor once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Mulch around Vinca minor to help suppress weeds and retain moisture.
  • Remove any dead or diseased foliage to prevent the spread of disease.

Vinca minor is a beautiful and versatile groundcover plant that is easy to grow and care for. It is a great choice for gardeners of all experience levels.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
