Vinca minor

Lesser perriwinkle

Price: €3.50

Vinca minor is a vigorous, ground-hugging plant which puts down roots wherever a stem touches the ground. It makes a good groundcover in sun or shade, and copes with dry conditions once established. All in all, a most useful plant. It has attractive purple-blue flowers in spring which are up to 3 cms across. Once established it requires next to no maintenance, but if planted as a groundcover, ensure you keep it weeded while establishing. For a solid groundcover, plant between 3 and 5 plants per square metre, depending on your patience and budget. 9cm container. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.​ (A)
