Description

Vinca Minor - Periwinkle is a pretty ground cover that yields medium purple, blue, or lavender leaves

It is an evergreen runner that multiplies. The plant is ideal for gardens and flower beds and grows best in hardiness zones 3-9. Dry to medium soil is best for this plant. Creeping Myrtle is a spring/summer plant and needs full sun or partial shade to thrive. 

  Creeping Myrtle makes a stunning addition to any home garden. The plant can take root anywhere a stem meets the ground, and it will thrive until the blooming season ends. You can quickly stimulate new growth by cutting the Myrtle back about four inches at the start of spring. 

Vinca Minor - Periwinkle grows between 4-8 inches at maturity, but some myrtles can grow as 12 inches tall

The plant is also deer-resistant, ideal for your landscape if you have deer in your area. The ground cover looks great around flower beds and trees. Once the creeping Myrtle has bloomed for the year, the stunning green leaves will remain until the flowers appear again. 

  The creeping Myrtle makes a beautiful addition if you already have daffodils or daisies in your garden. Myrtle is one of the first vines to bloom in the spring. While the plant is known for its periwinkle flowers, some plants yield white or purple blooms. The plants are also rabbit-resistant, so these tiny creatures can run through your yard without ruining your Myrtle. If your yard is hilly, you can plant creeping Myrtle to add visual appeal to the landscape and keep your soil from eroding. Creeping Myrtle is also great for areas of your landscape where other flowers don't grow or thrive. Keeping the plant healthy, water it about four times a week and keep the undergrowth cut to maintain the essential nature of the creeping Myrtle. 

Vinca Minor Plants are For Sale at Trees Nursery with Fast Shipping and Low Prices

The Vinca minor has over the centuries been spread to hardy growing zones worldwide and can be found in the United States in 45 of the fifty states. The Vinca Minor differs from the Vinca Major primarily in size, having more significant plant parts, flowers, and more giant leaves.

Americans seldom refer to Vinca Minor by its proper name, sometimes calling the plant the small or common periwinkle, but more commonly, Americans call it The Creeping Myrtle. Referring to it as a myrtle is botanically incorrect because technically, myrtles belong to a completely different species from the Vinca Minor. The Vinca Minor is usually referred to as the Dwarf Periwinkle in Europe and elsewhere.

The Vinca Minor resembles a vine that crawls along the ground in many respects. It puts down roots along its path, creating large colonies of plants that can cover a wide area. They are found primarily in woodland settings, the leaves and offshoots can be more than a foot high, but the plant rarely entwines with other plants or climbs rocks, trees, or other plants. The leaves are glossy and dark and usually no larger than an inch long.

The Vinca Minor flowers primarily in the spring but will still produce flowers through the summer and even into the fall season. The flowers are famously violet or bright purple, although specially cultivated versions are a paler purple or even white. However, it is so well known for its natural purple blooms that the color name called "periwinkle" originates with the plant. Follicles of an inch long that are filled with numerous seeds comprise the reproductive fruit of the plant.

Because it covers the ground and its dense growth, Vinca Minor is excellent for a lush green ground cover for gardens and areas where the goal is to suppress weed growth. It can produce flowers in the spring, summer, and fall and is easy to grow, making it very popular. However, once established, the plant is hard to eradicate, so You should not undertake cultivation lightly.

However, if you are looking for an excellent plant for a lush green ground cover while still suitable for cultivating in hardy growing zones and a plant that flowers throughout three of the four seasons, then Vinca Minor.
