Vinca Vine (sometimes called Common Periwinkle, Dwarf Periwinkle and Creeping Myrtle) is an herbaceous perennial that is native to Europe and southern Russia. It has small flowers that bloom in the spring and intermittently until frost, but is mostly known for its ground-covering foliage. Perennial in zones 4-8, this tough little evergreen is great for bedding containers or combination planters.


Growing Tips

 

For best results with Vinca Vine, we recommend using a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.2.

Pinching

Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation.

Spacing

Can be grown pot tight in an 1801. Space pots adequately to allow for light penetration and airflow between foliage of adjacent pots. We recommend 6-8 inches for 4” pots and 18-24 inches for 10” pots. Height Control

Height Control

Maintaining high light intensity and pinching are the best way to control height. An initial pinch is recommended, but additional pinching may be necessary to shape your final product. Florel has been shown to be effective in decreasing the spacing between internodes in Vinca Vine.

Pests

Aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies are the primary pests attracted to Vinca Vine.

Disease

Ralph Shugart are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Ralph Shugart Liners

  1. We recommend planting 4-5 starter plants per 10” basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 2-3 plants per pot should be sufficient if you have enough time. When using three starters, plant them in a triangle in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
