Product information "Mauve-coloured Periwinkle"

The mauve flowering periwinkle has a creeping habit. With its low growing shoots, it only grows about 10 to 20 cm high and 50 cm wide.

13cm round pot, plants per square meter: 6-8 pieces
0.5 L square pot, plants per square meter: 8-12 pieces
leaves are dark green and up to 5 cm in size. This contrasts beautifully with the distinctive, purple-red of the flowers, which appear in March and April and continue blooming sporadically up into September. The flower colour varies depending on whether the plant is planted in the sun or in the shade.
For a rapid greening, the small periwinkle is suitable for both home gardens and small gardens, as well as in public areas. It is particularly resistant to urban climates.

Vinca minor 'Atropurpurea' prefers a shady location under tall trees with enough moisture. It also grows well in a partially shaded site, i.e. near shrubs. Under optimal conditions care measures are hardly necessary. An occasional, not annual pruning in early summer is tolerated. Sometimes the plant is sensitive to soil compaction.
