Vinca Minor Periwinkle Plant Is A Good Plant For Soil Erosion

Vinca Minor Plant 

The minor vinca plant is often called periwinkle. This plant loves the sun, but it will adjust to having some shade. If you want lots of leaves on your plant, give it a little more shade, and it will reward you with lots of foliage that is a darker green. Alternatively, if you want to see more flowers on your plant, place it in a sunny location. 

 

 It grows in zones 4 to 8. Vinca minor can withstand drought well. This can be great news for those who often forget to water their plants or do not have time to mess with them. 

 

 This plant that makes an excellent groundcover usually grows to be about 6 inches tall. It will spread to be about 18 inches wide. The foliage often makes a mound on the ground, with flower shoots rising above the foliage mound. 

 

 Vinca Minor Flowers 

 

 Watch for the vinca minor to start putting on flowers as the days grow longer and begin to heat up. The tubular flowers are usually bluish-purple and are spring and summer blooming plants. The phlox-like flowers appear at leaf axles. Each flower can be up to 1 inch across. You can expect flowers to appear intermittently until the early fall. 

 

 Vinca Minor Leaves 

 The leaves on the minor vinca plant can be up to 1.5 inches long, and they are evergreen. The dark green leaves appear on trailing stems. Each plate has an oval or ovate shape. If the leave gets broken, it puts out a milky substance. 

 

 How Does Vinca Minor Spread? 

 Vinca minor spreads by sending out trailing stems. Almost every place that the branch touches the ground, vinca minor will send down roots and start a new plant. Then, these plants will send out their trailing stems to begin even more plants. 

 

 Why Choose Vinca Minor? 

 If you are looking for a low-maintenance ground covering plant, then the vinca minor may be a perfect option for you. It quickly spreads with minimum effort on your part. Plant it in well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Feed it once in the spring with a complete fertilizer. 

 

 The beautiful vinca minor thrives in soils where many plants have trouble growing, including dry and rocky soils. Insects and deer do not like this plant. Keep it healthy by mowing it down after the last flower fades to promote healthier plants through good air circulation.
