Vinca Plants Make An Attractive Ground Cover.

Try Vinca As A Ground Cover!

Vinca is also called Periwinkle. It is low growing maybe 1’ – 2’ tall. As it grows along the ground it occasionally roots where the stem touches bare soil thus helping it to spread and cover your ground.


Vinca produces Violet Colored flowers throughout summer. According to Wikipedia, in India the plant is known as sadaphuli which means always flowering!


Vinca plants grow well in full sun to partial shade. They seem to do best in part sun situations.

Our Staff invite you to visit the nursery and take a look at our Vinca plants 
as well as other ground covers we offer!
