Vinca ‘Cora Violet’

FN 3.3 VIN Cora Violet DisplayImage.ashx learn2grow
Vibrant violet flowers

Pretty periwinkle flowers in vibrant violet keep coming all summer, to brighten a woodland edge or rock garden in full sun. We also use vinca for mass plantings and containers—anywhere we need an easy-care splash of bold color. Notice how the extra large flowers pop against the glossy green foliage.

‘Cora Violet’ is a valuable plant to keep in the designer tool box: it cranks out a lot of blooms, stands up to heat and humidity, and bounces back nicely after a rain. As a matter of fact, vinca actually prefers drought conditions so we keep the soil on the thirsty side, watering only when it feels dry to the touch.

Deadheading is not required, and Cora vinca have been bred to resist aerial phytophthora, a fungal disease that is kryptonite to the common vinca—another plus for the series.

This variety is available in the 8-inch pot.
