Vinca Major Surrey Marble

 

Vinca Major Surrey Marble. Tough and long living. It bursts into growth in spring and will flower year after year. On the shorter more upright shoots, masses of 3cm flowers are produced creating a bright purple / blue splash of colour with attractive glossy green leaves margined with a central splash of greenish yellow. Ideal for ground cover and to help prevent weeds. 15-30cms (6-12in) by 90-120cms (3-4ft).

 

 

Plant in any reasonable garden soil as long as it is not too dry. Hardy.
