Vinca is the genus and common name for two species of vining plants cultivated as ornamental ground covers for their glossy leaves and purple, pinwheel-like flowers. Once established, vinca tolerates drought and moderately cold temperatures with minimal damage to its health or appearance. However, the seedlings cannot tolerate dampness or chilly temperatures, so it is best to germinate the seeds indoors 10 to 12 weeks before the last frost in spring.

The foliage of vinca plants is dark green and leathery looking. Vinca plants bear single blooms with five petals that frequently touch or overlap. Many varieties feature a contrasting eye. If you haven’t included vincas in your garden for a while, you should check out the expanded colour palette that now includes blooms in every shade of the pink, rose, and lilac spectrum. Peach and white flowers are also available.

Common name: bigleaf periwinkle, large periwinkle, greater periwinkle and blue periwinkle
Color: Blue, Multicolor, Orange, Pink, Purple, White, Yellow
Bloom time: summer
Height: Height: 4-6" Width: 3-5

Planting & Care
Vinca or Periwinkle is a prolific heat and drought tolerant annual, perfect for hot, dry areas. It s easy to grow, and requires little or no attention. A grower once reported that he has grown Vinca in the same location for 30 years. It successfully reseeded itself each year, with no effort on his part.

The plants are grown for its attractive glossy, green foliage, as well as its flowers. Flowers bloom all summer, and up to frost. Common colours include white, rose, pink, and red.

Sunlight: Sun Exposure: 4 to 6+ hours

Soil: Clay, Moist, Sandy

Water: Water thoroughly.

Fertilizer: Fertilize vincas every two weeks with a balanced flower fertilizer to help these performers keep up the blooming momentum.

  • The new vincas on the market are easier to start from seed than their predecessors.
  • They do take time to flower however, so start seeds indoors at least 10 weeks before your average last frost.
  • Cover the seeds enough to ensure darkness, and use supplemental heat if necessary to provide an ideal germination temperature of 75 degrees F.
  • Don’t rush to put out vinca plants in the spring.
  • Plants set out too early in cold, wet soil will deliver a sickly performance.
  • A safe bet is to plant your vincas around the same time you set out your tomato transplants: when evening temperatures average 60 degrees F.
  • Vincas demand well-draining soil.
  • Add compost or grit to your heavy soil; alternatively, plant vincas in raised beds or containers.

  • Vinca is drought tolerant, but if you notice the leaves start to curl, it’s time for a drink.
  • Vincas are free-flowering and self-cleaning, and no dead-heading is necessary.
  • Fertilize vincas every two weeks with a balanced flower fertilizer to help these performers keep up the blooming momentum.
