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.
