Vinca Minor Plant. On the other hand, perennial vincas are also spreading plants, but you can classify them into vinca minor and vinca major. More so, vinca major has a mounding habit compared to vinca minor that only grows up to 6 inches.
The italian name for this plant is fiore di morte (flower of death). The stems root at the nodes as they go along the ground to form a dense carpet of lustrous foliage. In my opinion it should not be grown as it escapes private land, kills natives because it shrouds the ground and is a harbour for wasp nests below.
