Vinca Rosea, commonly known as Madagascar periwinkle or rosy periwinkle, is a colorful and resilient annual flower. Known for its vibrant blooms in shades of pink, purple, or white, Vinca Rosea thrives in sunny garden beds or containers.

With its long-lasting flowers and glossy green foliage, Vinca Rosea adds charm to any garden or landscape.

Plant Care:

  • Light Requirements: Plant Vinca Rosea in full sun for best blooming. It can tolerate some light shade but blooms less profusely.

  • Watering Schedule: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during hot weather. Water deeply to encourage deep root growth.

  • Soil Type: Use well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Vinca Rosea prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil pH.

  • Fertilizing Routine: Feed every 4-6 weeks with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. Avoid excessive nitrogen, which can promote foliage growth over flowers.

  • Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to promote continuous blooming throughout the season. Trim leggy stems to encourage bushier growth.

  • Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around plants to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Avoid mulch directly touching stems to prevent rot.

  • Pest and Disease Control: Monitor for pests like aphids and spider mites. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap. Watch for signs of fungal diseases and ensure good air circulation.

  • Temperature and Humidity: Vinca Rosea thrives in warm temperatures and can tolerate heat well. It prefers moderate humidity levels but is adaptable.
