Comments: A hot, rosy-pink flower with a contrasting white eye. Remove (pinch out) terminal growth two weeks after planting to induce a more stocky, fuller branched plant. Always plant periwinkles in full sunlight and in a well drained soil, preferably in a raised bed. Rotate the planting of periwinkle with other annuals to prevent the build-up of plant disease organisms like phytophthora.
