Sr Item name
1 Vinca, Catharanthus roseus (White) - Plant
2 5 inch (13 cm) Grower Round Plastic Pot (Black)

The clear crisp flowers and glossy green leaves of annual vinca are so perfect; you may be tempted to rub them to see if they are real.The plants are grown for its attractive glossy, green foliage, as well as its flowe

Vinca plants are subshrubs or herbs, and have slender trailing stems 1 to 2 m (3 to 6 feet) long but not growing more than 20 to 70 cm (8 to 30 inches) above ground; the stems frequently take root where they touch the ground, enabling the plant to spread widely. The leaves are opposite, simple broad lanceolate to ovate, 1 to 9 cm (0.25 to 3.5 inches) long and 0.5 to 6 cm (0.25 to 2.25 inches) broad.The flowers, produced through most of the year, are salverform (like those of Phlox), simple, 2.5 to 7 cm (1 to 3 inches) broad, with five petals joined together at the base to form a tube. The fruit consists of a pair of divergent follicles; a dry fruit which is dehiscent along one rupture site in order to release seeds.Annual vinca plants are of the genus Catharanthus, a member of the Apocynaceae family. This is a case where paying attention to the Latin name is helpful: you must distinguish the annual vinca flower from the perennial vinca minor vine, which forms a dense mat and can be invasive.
