Vinca minor, an evergreen ground cover vine, inhabits much of North America. The name was probably derived from a Latin word meaning "to bind." Certainly, as a ground cover, it is very effective for erosion control. Vinca prefers moist soil in partial shade to full shade, but will also tolerate sun and drought. It is deer resistant. Plants in 3-1/2 inch pots are the right choice for planting small to medium-size areas.
