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.
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.
It doesn’t climb, it just grows long, long, long.
its from madagascar
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.
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
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.
my local park has this plant for years now. It doesn’t seem to damage
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
Yolanda, you mentioned planting vinca minor in full hot sun. others say
shade is necessary. will it really grow in hot sun too…? thxs
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.
This is an invasive species damaging the ecosystem…. you shouldn’t be
trying to grow it.
