Vinca major 'Variegata'

Vinca major 'Variegata'

Common name variegated periwinkle
Family apocynaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-10)
Flowers blue
Size 12-18"

An almost accidental garden inhabitant - this was purchased a few years ago to live in a pot next to our front door. Unbeknowst to us, this vining perennial took root in the garden flanking the door, and has lived there since. We didn't think it would be hardy here, but I guess it is. It doesn't spread much in our climate, so it makes a nice crawler with pretty leaves, and this spring, for the first time, even a flower!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
