The flowers are the main attraction of this periwinkle. They are a deep plum-puple and they have the same open, starry shape as all the other perwinkle flowers. Choose this plant to cover the ground in just about any situation, but you will find that it flowers more if given plenty of light. Flowers are produced over a long period from spring to autumn, and the glossy, green leaves wil provide a backdrop through the year. Cut back hard in early spring if you want to keep this rampant spreader in check. To propagate, divide plants from autumn to spring. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
