This annual is ideally suited as a ground cover plant for those hot, humid climates. Vinca Rosea grows 8 - 10 inches high, but it is a fast spreader and fills in spaces nicely making it perfect for beds, borders, and as a general ground cover plants.

Sow pink Periwinkle 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.  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. Vinca Rosea is fast-growing in hot temperatures and tolerant of nutrient-poor and sandy soils. The pink Periwinkle plant produces large numbers of seeds, and especially in warmer climates, the seeds may sprout Periwinkle seedlings for next season.
