Creeping vine of some kind [Solved] Vinca Major Variegata
« on: May 11, 2010, 09:23:30 PM »
What am I?  I sure hope I have pretty flowers.  I am down low at the base of a tree and am about 3 feet across and about a foot tall.

I thought it looked like something I've seen in hanging baskets....

They can get out of hand. So keep your shears handy.

Yes, looks like vinca to me.  We plant it in hanging baskets and containers.

Vinca Major Variegata.
Sold here as an annual, used alot in pots, window boxes and hanging planters for a cascader. (is that a word?)



Look, I know the supernatural is something that isn't supposed to happen, but it does happen...RZ

Thank you all.  Fortunately they are in a spot where I do not mind them taking over so that is good!  They are both under the pair of locust trees that are right next to where I park my car.
