Vinca minor is a very versatile plant for any situation where you want good, low ground cover. 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 are an attractive blue colour. The long, trailing stems will spread indefinitely. Vinca minor is good for shady sites, but you will get far more flowers where the light is good. Cut back hard in early spring if you want to restrict its growth. To propagate, divide plants from autumn to spring. Vinca minor ‘Illumination’ has bright yellow leaves with a narrow dark green margin.
