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.
