Ah, not to be confused with the 'weedy' classified Blue Periwinkle Vinca major.
I was lucky enough that there was still a lovely planting of this by the original owner .. from 1940 .. still in one of the gardens. It has of course had help to 'migrate' to other gardens, with my help, as a ground cover. Love it!
and climbing over my favoourite place to sit & rest.
Took this today .. some of the original 1940's planting of Vinca minor 'in situ' .. the stick tree in the pic is a trimmed naked Crepe Myrtle.
We added the granite rock border about 4 yrs ago to add definition to the garden .. and control the Periwinkle runners.
Here are 2 pics of this area of Vina minor I took y'day .. after recent well timed rain & a return .. slowly .. to a bit of warmer weather, the Periwinkle has exceeded itself in 'blue'! Click on each pic to see it full size ..

Well, not so bad for areas where you have space to let it .. some areas here where I grow it, were 'hard' places to grow other stuff that needed much sun, like under the well established & very big trees .. and some areas, like along the pathway, were covered thick in gravel/blue metal & very had to remove all of it .. so we gave up after all attempts to add mulch & top soil were unsuccessful. I only need to trim with scissors when it's a bit overgrown or running. Love gardening with scissors!
