Vinca, Merry Go Round Grape

Short Description

This is the most hardy of vincas;it's enormous, colorful and carefree.

Full Description

Vincas are the indestructible beauties of the garden. While resembling impatiens to a remarkable degree, both in their flowers and coverage, they thrive in full sun and intense heat. Hardy, large, bushy plants provide a dense layer of sparkling color and evergreen foliage to beds, borders and containers. This luscious grape shade mixes melodiously with other shades in the Merry Go Round lineup. Require almost zero care.

Vinca, Merry Go Round Grape is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Vinca These 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Performer Developed in Japan, this Vinca variety is proving to be the best performing one. Plants are vigorous and literary ironclad tough in the mid-Atlantic climate. Plants are taller and bigger than the regular Vinca and feature spotless foliage. Blooms even in scorching heat and dry conditions.
