Shade Loving Evergreen Groundcover

Also known as Creeping Vinca, Vinca Minor ‘Bowles’ Periwinkle is a shade-loving evergreen ground cover. It can spread out up to 3 feet, establishing new roots as the individual stems spread out. This creates a lush mat of practically weed-proof color. Blue flowers in spring and glossy evergreen color all year. This is a great ground cover for underneath trees or larger shrubs that don’t get much, if any sun. It is also popular on sloped areas to help with erosion control.

Periwinkle is commonly sold as plugs in flats or trays. You can also buy more established Bowles Periwinkle in containers up to 1 gallon.
