Periwinkle (Vinca Rosea Dwarf Little Blanche) - Vinca Little white is a trouble-free delight in the flower garden. Grown from Periwinkle seeds, it begins blooming in early summer with big, pure white flowers. The flowers continue in full force for months, despite extreme heat, drought and poor soil. The plants are uniform and full. Periwinkle flowers attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinating insects with their nectar. This scented flower can also be used medicinally to treat a number of ailments such as, high blood pressure, sore throat, tonsillitis, toothaches, intestinal pain, and more. How To Grow Periwinkle From Seed: Sow Periwinkle ground cover seeds indoors 6 - 10 weeks before the last frost is expected. Cover the seeds with 1/4 inch of potting mix, spray with water to moisten and press down lightly. These flower seeds will not germinate in any sort of light, so cover trays or containers with a black plastic sheet or a newspaper. Lift the plastic or newspaper regularly to moisten by misting.
Once seedlings emerge, they need bright light. At about 2 - 3 inches tall, transplant the strongest plants into individual pots. Periwinkles can be moved outside once the temperature is consistently above 65F degrees. Directly sowing Periwinkle seeds is not recommended, but if you choose to direct sow, follow the same steps as above. Wait until danger of frost has passed and temperatures are consistently warm, and prepare the soil well so that it is light and fine.
