Classic Periwinkle/Myrtle Ground Cover
Vinca Bowles sports attractive shades of deep lilac overlapping petals nestled in glossy dark green, darkly veined leaves. Rooting along its vining offshoots, it forms a dense, vigorously spreading carpet. The 'Bowles' variety has larger and glossier leaves than other Vinca, as well as more numerous flowers. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.

Vinca General Information

Vinca are evergreen groundcovers. Good for bank stabilization and erosion control. Can escape into the woods, so please plant responsibly. Some winter protection may be needed in colder zones. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Vinca Plant Care

Thrives in most soils. Stems root where they touch the ground. Cut back winter damaged growth to 4" in spring. Divide in early spring or mid fall as needed. May emerge late in spring.
