Common Periwinkle (Vinca minor)

About Common Periwinkle

Common Periwinkle, also known as creeping myrtle, is a trailing ground cover that forms dense mats that suppress the growth of native plants through direct competition, and degrades animal habitat. It has glossy evergreen leaves and bright starry blue flowers. It roots at the internodes where stems touch the ground. The plants establish and grow quickly with a tolerance to poor soils and unfavourable weather conditions.
