    I live in cantral Phoenix AZ. I need advice on how to care for vinca plant/flower?

  • Jason:

    Thanks for visiting our website. Vinca are very easy to care for. They need lots of sun and lots of heat. They are drought tolerant and let you know when they need water when they start to wilt a little. They do not like to stay wet so try not to over water them. They also do not like to go to bed wet so try to water early in the day if possible.

    Vincas are susceptible to aerial phytopthera and if yours start to die off for no reason, this is why. Cool and wet environments make the vinca more susceptible to the phytopthera.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.

  • Olgalinda:

    Can I purchase vinca cooler mix plants from your nursery? Are you able to ship to new York? Thanks

  • jason:

    You can purchase vinca and other plants at our retail store here on the farm in Van Buren, AR. We are not set up to ship plants to individuals. Please contact your local garden center. They should have a good supply of vinca on hand or will be getting some in soon.

    Thanks for visiting our website and commenting. Come back soon.

  • JENNIFER PARKER:

    HI MY MOM LIVES IN BEAUMONT TEXAS AND SHE HAS THESE PLANTS AND THEY HAVE LITTLE WHITE BUGS ON THEM DO THEY NEED THESE BUGS?? CAN SOMEONE PLZ TELL ME WHAT I NEED 2 DO THANKS

  • jason:

    Jennifer,

    Thanks for contacting us. There are several critters that could be infesting her periwinkles. I suggest doing web searches for white flies, aphids or mealybugs which are the most likely culprits. See if you can find a picture that matches what she has then look for a treatment. You can probably find a pesticide or organic alternative.

    I’m sorry that I can’t be of more help. It is hard to identify the bugs without seeing a picture. Good luck.

  • Susan:

    Is this related to the vinca major (murtle) and is it related to impatients (looks very similar). I just bought some at Lowes, thanks.

    • jason:

      Susan,

      Thanks for visiting our site and commenting. Vinca Major (Myrtle)is not really related to this vinca. The scientific name of these vincas are Catharanthus roseus and the scientific name of Vinca Major is actually Vinca major.

      Hope this helps and good luck with your Vinca.

  • We have a section in our yard that faces east and gets sun about 6 hrs daily,do you think vinca will grow there? I’m in Vero beach FL. thanks GB ~~by

      Bonnie,

      Thanks for visiting us. Most plants that require “full sun” need 6-8 hours of sunlight to do well. Less than that will cause the plants to get leggy, pale or stop blooming. Six hours is borderline for Vinca to do well. I think it would be OK but may not look as good as it would in a flower bed that got more sun. You may want to consider other plants the do well in part sun/part shade like Impatiens or Begonias.

      Hope this helps and thanks again!

      Best,

      Jason
