Vinca (Madagascar periwinkle)

Genus: Vinca.

Species: Vinca minor.

It's a beautiful pale coral...and does wonderfully in full sun and in dry conditions...they're popping up everywhere in Houston this summer! These are the types I have now:

'Cora Mix' - pale pinkish coral
'Pacifica Lipstick Mix' - this name makes me laugh! It's a brilliant magenta color.
'Cobra Orange' - with a name like this, I found it irresistible- also the color is unusual - a deep brilliant orange with petals that seem to twist a little - hence the 'cobra' part of it, I imagine!
