Description

Hi, I'm White Periwinkle! I am the definition of small but mighty - while I only grow to six inches tall, I provide a lush and dense evergreen ground cover, and my glossy dark leaves are studded with showy blooms of white flowers that can bloom in the spring, summer and fall. I am striking when mass planted for ground cover, and I am also a very popular choice as the spiller plant in a spiller-thriller-filler container combination. I do require some maintenance - you'll want to keep an eye on me to make sure I am not wandering into different parts of your garden (I like to spread out and explore - but regular upkeep will keep me in check!) Other than that, I am very easy to please; my perfect home can be in any soil, and either sunny or shady - all I ask is that my soil is kept moist.
