Amazing VincaThese vinca plants are unbelievable! The 6 small plants quickly grew into the largest and healthiest vinca plants I have ever seen. They have now filled in the entire garden and you can't tell where one plant begins and one ends. They are perfect for the super hot summer we just had - the hotter it is, the happier they are! The flowers are large and a beautiful color. I'll definitely be buying these again next year!
