Southern Gardening: Find late summer color with vinca
By the time August arrives, everyone wants to find a durable, colorful plant, and one of my favorites is the annual flowering vinca.
Annual flowering vinca has dark green, glossy foliage with a prominent rib in the middle. The foliage color makes a great background for the outstanding flower colors. These colors range from white to dark red, some with dark or white eyes. Botanically speaking, annual flowering vinca is Catharanthus rosea, but some garden centers may label it Madagascar periwinkle.
An exciting new color has been introduced this year. Chosen as an All-America Selection for 2012, Jams ‘N Jellies have velvety flowers that are a deep, dark purple. The nearly black flowers have a bright white eye.
