Merlot Vinca Minor

Merlot Vinca Minor

 

This variety of the popular evergreen groundcover boasts deep green foliage, studded with unique and showy burgundy flowers in spring. Very shade tolerant, the leaves will sometimes scorch in too much sun. This easy-care selection likes to be mowed every couple of years to rejuvenate growth and keep the clumps thick.
