It is tough, fully hardy and evergreen with pretty mauve-purple flowers produced from Spring through to Autumn, once established it will need next to no attention. A particularly tolerant plant, it will be happy in shade or sun, with deep green foliage carpeting the ground.
This form of the Lesser Periwinkle has rounded plum-purple single flowers effusively in spring and then sporadically through to autumn. A fast growing very useful groundcover plant.
Ideal for those dry shady areas where nothing much grows. Also very good on banks, verges or cascading over dry walls etc.
