Vinca (Periwinkle) minor 'Bowles' (Bowles Common Periwinkle)

Home »

Evergreen, vine-like groundcover with glossy green leaves that are larger than most Vinca and with much more pronounced veining. Violet blue pinwheel shaped flowers bloom in late spring. Spreads quickly once established. Tolerant of infrequent foot traffic. Very tough. Good for shady areas where other plants are hard to establish. Will also grow in heavy clay as long as it gets adequate moisture.
