Gardening A to Z: V is for Vinca

Vinca is one of the only groundcovers that I think I would willingly use in one of my gardens. I like the deep green of the leaves. And of course, it has a purple flower. Purple is my favorite color and is automatically used in my garden as any flower that blooms in that color.

Spring time is the best time to see these flowers in bloom. I wish they would last all season. Then again, they are a promise of warmer weather to come, because they arrive in the spring.
