Annual of Flowering Vinca

If you are looking for a plant that is happy to bake in the sun and provides an abundance of flowers from June all the way through to the first frosts, then flowering Vinca is for you!  This pretty little annual should not be underestimated, it is extremely heat and drought tolerant, and requires very little in terms of care.  Plants flower readily and do not require deadheading.  Simply plant, water and enjoy!  Flowering Vinca is not to be mistaken with perennial Vinca the groundcover, also known as periwinkle.
