Hello, my name is Wine Periwinkle. I am usually spotted by my rich wine-red flowers which speckle over the dense mat of glossy green groundcover my foliage creates. I am the definition of small but mighty - I grow well in full sun or full shade, and can even thrive under mature trees. 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.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water the Atropurpurea Periwinkle deeply once a week, ensuring the soil is evenly moist but not waterlogged.
  • Maintenance: Deadhead spent flowers to prolong blooming.
  • Pruning: Prune the Atropurpurea Periwinkle in early spring to shape the plant and encourage bushier growth. Avoid pruning in the fall as it may stimulate new growth that can be damaged by frost.
  • (Optional):Fertilize the Atropurpurea Periwinkle with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Alternatively, incorporate slow-release granular fertilizer into the soil in early spring.
