Plant Description: Greater Periwinkle

Bigleaf periwinkle (Vinca major) is a perennial ground cover that looks like a larger version of its more diminutive cousin with violet-blue flowers, periwinkle (Vinca minor). Bigleaf periwinkle grows best in locations where it has room to spread without bumping into or crowding out other plants.

Flowers are simple and small, the brilliant blue flowers have five petals and pale blue centers, blooming on a matted and trailing growth of glossy, leathery dark green leaves. Though the plant is most commonly seen with violet-blue flowers. The flowers may have a very faint, sweet fragrance.
