Vinca

Vinca

Plant Type

Catharanthus roseus

Bring on the heat! A native to Madagascar, the vinca is most noted for its high tolerance to heat and drought: that’s good news for the forgetful waterer on a hot summer day. With such fuss-free care, it’s no surprise this multi-functional plant is used for borders, edging, ground cover, bedding plants and even container gardening. The glossy green foliage provides beautiful ground cover and acts as a filler for bare spots in an annual or perennial garden. The vinca blooms are round and flat and come in pink, purple, red, white, magenta, and various bi-colors that bloom consistently all summer long.
