Vinca bloom their little hearts out, even in the hot Florida summer. Pretty and heat-resistant, they are fabulous flowers to grow.
I bought a landscaper’s flat of assorted pink and white vinca about 5 years ago and they have reseeded for me every year since then.
I have only ever seen them in shades of pink and white, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw these at Wal-mart.
Blue is very rare in the flower world, and I really think of this as more of a deep purple, but it was so amazing to me that I just had to get one.
I plan to strictly stick to the list whenever I have one of my rare Walmart excursions, but they had blue vinca! What could I do? I wouldn’t have been able to stop thinking about them if I didn’t take one home with me.
Have you ever seen this? Are you pretty excited too?
