3 quick reasons why you should have Vinca:

They are strong and sturdy.

They have beautiful small colorful flowers.Β They are perfect for adding different colors to your Garden!

They need no maintenance.

 

They say Vincas are both annuals and perennials, but I have only the annual ones in my Garden. That means… new colors every year πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

As I have said earlier, with annuals you can add sufficient compost while potting and just once throughout the life of the plant (or more if you feel necessary).

Vincas love bright sun and don’t fare very well in the monsoons! So be sure to buy/plant them after the monsoons!
