Also known as the variegated leaf Periwinkle or Greater Periwinkle, this fantastic evergreen shrub produces pretty violet-blue flowers from late spring to summer amongst those stunning creamy edged variegated leaves. Holds the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit for its reliable performance, stability of colour and form and good resistance to pests and diseases. It has a mat forming habit and will grow anywhere in the garden, even in shade under trees where very little else will so an incredibly useful plant for bring some colour to shady areas. The flower colour will be brighter in full sunlight. Allow one plant per square meter. 9cm pot plants supplied
