Ground Cover
Vinca minor is an attractive, trailing ground cover that performs well in deep shade. It features deep purple to magenta colored blossoms which contrast with the deep green foliage. It prefers well-drained soil and will tolerate partial sun in cooler Bay Area locations. It does best with regular water but will require less irrigation as it becomes established. As a groundcover, this hard-working plant is an excellent choice for planting beneath tree canopies or cascading over a retaining wall.
