The Vinca Minor
'Illumination', produces near continuous foliage changes. Spring growth
emerges chartreuse then brightens to golden yellow. Each yellow leaf is
edged with a grass green margin. Later in the year plants turn to cream on
attractive pink stems. Direct sun will prematurely bleach foliage. Blooms in
late spring and continues sporadically through the summer. Flowers are Dutch
blue, 1 inch wide for high contrast against foliage.
Dramatic alone in hanging baskets for
long golden tresses. Ideal foliage accent for color pots too. In the garden
use as a spreading groundcover to brighten shade gardens. Beautiful
cascading down slopes, banks, walls and curbs. Pest and disease free.
