Vinca (Seeds)


Vinca refers to several groups of plants suitable for a number of applications: Vinca minor (Common Periwinkle, Dwarf Periwinkle) and Vinca major (Big-leaf Periwinkle) both make lovely, evergreen groundcovers; Catharanthus roseus (Madagascar Periwinkle) is an upright, flowering annual perfect for beds and containers. Known for their adaptability and low maintenance, they thrive in heat, humidity, drought, cold, and poor soil, flaunting blooms in shades of white, rose, pink, and red, and flowering from spring to fall, depending on the variety.

Annual Vinca, or annual Periwinkle, are heat loving annuals that produce large, flat flowers over glossy green foliage. Breeding efforts over the past 10-20 years have resulted in major improvements in this genus by providing larger flowers with overlapping petals in a wider range of colors. Recent breeding has resulted in the availability of hybrid or F1 vinca, translating to even more superior performance over a wider range of climatic conditions, larger flowers and improved disease tolerance.
