Marvelous for ground cover this vine-like plant spreads along the ground and puts down roots along the stems to form large colonies.It might reach 40cm high but does not climb.
The glossy, dark evergreen leaves grow in pairs opposite.
It flowers from early spring to mid summer with solitary flowers from the leaf axils.
Hardy - It is happy in full sun or partial shade
and thrives in well-drained, light, moist soils.
Vinca major is very similar but larger, with broader leaves which have hairy edges.
