Vinca minor is a very versatile plant for many mixed borders and containers. The leaves are small, rounded to lance-shaped, and a pleasing, glossy, green. The open, starry flowers keep coming out from mid-spring to autumn, and there may even be a few surprises at other times. Vinca is good for shady sites, but you will get far more flowers where the light is good. To propagate, divide plants from autumn to spring. Vinca minor f. alba ‘Gertrude Jekyll’ has dark green leaves and brilliant white flowers.
