Flowering annuals provide your landscape with decorative vibrant colors and contrasts. Annuals are seasonal & are replaced once their season has come to an end.
Also known as Periwinkle, Vinca grows 7 to 24 inches high and wide, forming a mound of colorful flowers in white, pink, or rosy-purple on brittle stems. Flowering is prolific throughout the warm months, although plants may establish poorly in very hot weather. The plant tolerates heat, and flowers in the hottest weather, probably better than most other flowering ground covers. Spaced 12 to 20 inches apart, plants will form a solid mass of mounded foliage and flowers 6 to 8-weeks after sowing seed, provided they are fertilized, watered lightly (or not at all), and planted in full sun. This flower will last longer than 1 season if cared for. UF/IFAS
