Vinca, Merry Go Round Red

Short Description

Heat loving beauties with flowers that resemble impatiens.

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 saturated red shade mixes melodiously with other shades in the Merry Go Round lineup. Require almost no care.
