For shady areas beneath shrubs, and in other dim places, even where grass won't grow, you can have a 12-month carpet of thick abundant, evergreen Periwinkle ground cover. In May, shade-happy Periwinkle gives you a wide profusion of beautiful lavender-blue flowers that make the dullest part of the yard look like a showcase!
It grows so vigorously, you can put periwinkle in poor, stony soil, on steep banks, in rock gardens -- practically anywhere. Does better in shade than grass -- but likes the sun, too. Plant 6-12" apart for a lush carpet Grows 4-5" tall -- all without special care. You get healthy, nicely rooted plants ready for easy transplanting. Deer resistant. Evergreen.
