Vinca is in evergreen groundcover that makes a thick carpet of trailing stems. Blue, periwinkle flowers rise just above the deep green glossay foliage in spring. This is an excellent groundcover for shady areas of the landscape. It spreads underneath azaleas and other shade-loving shrubs. Hosta lilies and other shade perennials will pop right through it when emerging from dormancy in spring.

There are two types of Vinca that we use in the landscape. Vinca Minor grows to about 4" in height and is less invasive than Vinca Major which grows to about 10" in height and is quite a wild spreader. If the wild look is for you, and you have large shady beds, Vinca Major is for you.
