|Nature's Beauty (Periwinkle)|
The Periwinkle (aka: Vinca - Latin: vincire “to bind, fetter”) is native to Europe, northwest Africa and Southwest Asia. Avid gardeners in Asia, Europe, India and the United States have been cultivating Periwinkles for centuries. Periwinkles had also been grown in the past by herbalists in the belief of their medicinal properties. Periwinkles grow best in warm climates.
See the following Wikipedia link to learn more about the Periwinkle (Vinca).
