Vinca Major | Big Leaf Periwinkle is the perfect solution for those hard to grow areas in the landscape, retaining wall areas, hillsides, drainage ditches, or just any difficult spot in the yard. Vinca major is a fast growing evergreen ground cover with large evergreen foliage and large pretty blue-lilac flowers. Grows to 12 inches in height but soon falls over to spread where it roots at the leaf nodes as it covers the ground with its shiny green foliage. Vinca major or Big leaf periwinkle will flower profusely in the spring with a big show and then sporadically throughout the summer.
Note: Because of its larger leaves vinca major will cover the area planted faster than most any other ground cover.
Light: Full sun to partial shade. Sunnier positions result in more flowers and shadier positions result in more ground covering foliage.
Moisture: Vinca tolerates dry soils but grows best in rich, moist soils. In full sun or in very loose soils it will need more frequent watering.
