The flowers are so numerous on the shoots that the foliage is barely visible. The small foliage leaves are dark green. They are elliptical and glossy. They remain standing throughout the winter. If you buy Vinca minor, you can enjoy this attractive ground cover all year round. A blue evergreen grows between 10 and 15 centimetres high and grows up to ten centimetres a year. The plant is versatile. It enriches the shade garden in a wonderful way. It also copes well with semi-shady locations.

For a small evergreen to develop perfectly, the semi-shrub needs a well-drained, loose and humus-rich soil so that no waterlogging can form. Then a small evergreen with its fine shoots will cover larger areas in no time at all. Vinca minor also looks beautiful at the edge of the border. It can even enhance the underbrush. Especially when planted under roses, this plant is a lovely addition. The evergreen is uncomplicated and robust.
Vinca minor is hardy and needs no special protection.
The ideal time for planting is in spring. However, you can also plant the evergreen all year round. For a larger area, you should plant twelve plants per square metre. With Vinca minor 'Marie' you can create great garden pictures. Together with evergreens in different colours, next to Polsterphlox or Bellflower, this ground cover comes out really big. Evergreens are all-rounders in the garden. They are decorative and practical. With their dark green foliage they provide a fresh splash of colour even in winter. It doesn't get much nicer than this!
