Variegated Greater Periwinkle

Vinca major ‘Variegata’

  • Beautiful variegated foliage brightens any garden.
  • Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary.
  • Refers well-drained soil and partial shade.
  • This plant is known to be deer resistant.

Great for brightening up a shady spot, this ground-hugging, evergreen, trailing groundcover has dark green leaves with yellowish-white edges. Its texture is coarser than V. minor . This plant grows to 18 inches and spreads indefinitely. Blue flowers appear in spring. It can be used as an annual in cold climates. It is not quite as hardy as the popular Vinca minor and is not quite as aggressive either.

Common Names:  Bigleaf Periwinkle, Greater Periwinkle, Variegated Vinca Vine, Vinca Major
