Description
Vinca minor or Periwinkle is a favorite flowering groundcover, even in the coldest zones. It loves shade, so its perfect for ringing trees, making mowing easier. Short plants with small leaves put on little flowers in periwinkle blue. Its lovely--and this variation gives you variegated foliage as well.
