Vinca minor alba 'Gertrude Jekyll'Common Name: 'Lesser periwinkle'
This prostrate, evergreen shrub forms a neat carpet of lance-shaped, dark green leaves with wonderful, pure-white flowers, borne over a long period. Apr-Sep. H15cm S100cm.
Easy to grow in any but the driest soils and happy in sun or shade, although it will flower best in sunnier sites. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established. Excellent evergreen, weed-suppressing ground cover and the white flowers make it valuable for lightening dark areas.
