Vinca minor is commonly known as vinca or periwinkle and is one of the most popular and widely used ground covers. Trailing stems with smooth, evergreen leaves (to 1.5″ long) root at the nodes as they go along the ground and quickly spread to form an attractive ground cover. Lavender blue, phlox-like flowers (to 1 inch across) appear in spring and continue to flower intermittently throughout summer.
