April in the Garden - Vinca major (Periwinkle)

Pin It

I know it's considered a noxious weed in some environs but here on the cool northern California coast, Periwinkle is very containable and easily pulled out of places where it shouldn't stray.  Plus it can hide some otherwise not-so-pretty views.

Me, I was happy to catch the unfurling.

Happy gardening!

I love to use this plant in very shady planter boxes. It grows where most other plants will not and I live the sweet purple flowers.

Even though we mostly have shade here in our coastal area, this still grows ... in the shade!

It is a tender blue, isn't it Maki?

Periwinkle just fits, doesn't it Paz?
