Plant Description:
- Trailing evergreen shrub with glossy dark green, ovate leaves, flowers bluish purple with white throat, 2 cm diameter.
- Semi creeping stems. The plants often form a thick mat.
- Glossy, dark green, oval to oblong leaves, 2 inches long, grow in pairs on short leaf stalks.
- The single blue to violet or, rarely, white flowers rise from the leaf axils and produce two small slender seedpods.
- Like many herbs, periwinkle once had ties with magic and superstition. Supposedly the herb could ward off evil spirits, and in some places lesser periwinkle was held that no witch would dare enter a home where it hung at the entrance. In France the flower of lesser periwinkle is sometimes referred to as violette des sorciers, or "violet of the sorcerers."
Growing tips:
- A plant that grows best in cool climates.
