Variegated Greater Periwinkle

Vinca major ‘Variegata’

Variegated greater periwinkle (Vinca major 'Variegata')

Another flower is showing its pretty head this spring. This evergreen perennial has always been in my garden for as long as I can remember living here. It is very much the ground hugger, creeping like a vine through the flowerbeds, and then showing these splashes of violet-blue flowers. The flowers will show on and off between now and autumn. The green foliage is blotched with a creamy white margin. It grows in full sun or dense shade, and acts as a weed suppressor.
