Official Name: Vinca (/ˈvɪŋkə/;Latinvincire "to bind, fetter") is a genus of flowering plants in the family Apocynaceae

General description: Vinca, also known as Periwinkle, is a genus of 6 species of herbaceous perennials or evergreen shrubs in the family Apocynaceae, native to Europe, northwest Africa and Middle East. These easy-to-care plants are grown for their glossy, dark green foliage and eye-catching, unique pinwheel-shaped flowers. Vinca is great for beds, borders and as ground cover. Vinca plants are subshrubs or herbaceous, and have slender trailing stems 1–2 m (3.3–6.6 ft) long but not growing more than 20–70 cm (8–27.5 in) above ground; the stems frequently take root where they touch the ground, enabling the plant to spread widely.

How to grow:

Use any potting soil mixed with 1/4 part sand in your Vinca periwinkle’s pot. These are hardy plants tolerant of most soil types as long as the mix drains well. The sand helps create a soil that drains easily.

Plant the Vinca periwinkle along the edges of your pot, encircling the taller plants in the middle. This is a trailing plant that grows out of the pot. If planted in the middle, it may overgrow inside the pot and prevent other plants in the pot from thriving.

Add mulch to the top of the soil to protect the Vinca periwinkle and other plants from extreme temperatures and keep the soil moist.

Place the pot in a spot where it gets partial sun. Vinca periwinkle grows best in mostly shade but flowers best with more sunlight. However, too much direct afternoon sunlight can burn the plant.

Prune the Vinca periwinkle regularly. In optimal conditions, the plant grows beyond the pot without stopping. You can cut it back anytime of the year and to the length you prefer the vine to be at.

Add fertilizer to the pot in the spring after the last frost. This is the start of the growing season for Vinca periwinkle. You can use any general-purpose fertilizer per the instructions on the label.

Water as needed to keep the soil moist in the summer. In the winter, you do not need to water as often, because Vinca periwinkle does not grow much during the colder months.

Benefits: Vinca is also used for treating diarrhea, vaginal discharge, throat ailments, tonsillitis, chest pain, high blood pressure, sore throat, intestinal pain and swelling (inflammation), toothache, and water retention (edema).
