Vinca “Catharanthus Roseus” (Bright Eyes/Cape Periwinkle/Graveyard Plant/Old Maid/Rose Periwinkle)
- Plant Care
Annual vinca (Catharanthus roseus) is a tropical perennial that is grown as an annual in most regions. It has flowers and foliage that resemble impatiens, but rather than being a shade lover, annual vinca is a perfect choice for sunny locations. The foliage is dark green and leathery. Plant them in rock gardens, or in pots in front of your home and they don’t mind full sun, they will also do well in morning sun and afternoon shade.
vinca plants bear single blooms with five petals that frequently touch or overlap from early summer until the first frost. If you haven’t included vincas in your garden for a while, you should check out the expanded color palette that now includes blooms in every shade of the pink, rose, and lilac spectrum. They will also do great in containers. You can also plant them in the ground but in and around the southwest it is considered an annual.
