Same border, opposite direction.

Newer planted pittosporum 'Krinkled Blue' and fuchsia 'Army Nurse'. The ivy on the garage wall is opposite the side of our house, a tricky area to plant because of the shade. Periwinkle seems to thrive there!

W have a periwinkle in the deepest forest Ange. Actually, we have it everywhere. Most of the hills are covered with it.
It blooms beautifully on hills but only sparsely in the forest shade. We have lots of bluebells in the forest too but they do not bloom. No sun.

Thank you, Klahanie and Rose. I go in and hack the 'Jenny Pym' back twice a year. The smaller white vinca I had seems to have given up the ghost! The tits often nest in the box on the house wall because it is all rather unruly in there. As well as periwinkle there is honeysuckle and climbing hydrangea which give cover on the house wall.

My neighbour had periwinkle and it's thriving. Lovely aspect, Ange.
