Vinca

Fantastic groundcover for either damp or dry shade. Vinca minor will root at the leaf nodes so is very useful for tricky situations particularly sloping sites. They are great for underplanting and their trailing habit can be used to great effect in container planting. Consider underplanting Vinca with snowdrops or dwarf narcissi.
