  1. There’s no more worth rewarding when you have Vinca Minor in your home.
    It’s nice to grow this kind of plant in your yard. As far as my knowledge
    is concerned, Vinca Minor is one of the best alternative medicine you could
    ever have right in your garden. 

  2. this video doesn’t give me any specifics as to how to grow the plant. Well
    made video, but fishing for hits with the title.

  3. THANKS I HAVE A MOUND OF THIS STUFF IN MY BACK YARD. I COULDN’T HELP BUT TO
    NOTICE THE FLOWER MARKER IN THE POT BEHIND YOU I HAVE SOME POPCICLE STICK
    AND I WILL USE A MILK JUG TO DRAW THE FLOWER. WHAT DID YOU USE OR WHERE DID
    YOU BOUGHT YOURS.

  4. I’ve been growing this for over 10 years in my front yard, SoCalif., zone
    9. It gets full sun and the temps can go down to the 20’s in the winter, up
    to 110 (sometimes more, thankfully rarely) in the summer. I put it in a bed
    bordered by bricks, 2 high It grows fairly quickly, and thickly. I just
    trim it back with hedgers about once, sometimes twice per year. It’s gotten
    to about a foot tall and is very showy with purple flowers pretty much all
    year. It’s been drought tolerant once established

  5. Perhaps you don’t know what exactly is going on in your local park then.
    Has species richnees been on decline, have you examined the shady
    understory of tall deciduous and compared diversity across years? If it is
    in North America, you do not want periwinkle there.

  6. its not in NA, subtropical climate, think S.Africa or Madagascar, no
    deciduous trees. Periwinkle seems to live in harmony with all the rest of
    the ecosystem. Maybe they restrain them by pruning but they sure don’t look
    like it

  7. Yolanda, you mentioned planting vinca minor in full hot sun. others say
    shade is necessary. will it really grow in hot sun too…? thxs

  8. I wish mine would “grow like crazy.” I water them often, and they do not
    seem to spread or climb. In fact, I think they have shrunk back a bit.
