Gardening 06/08/2017


At first glance, a balcony may not seem to be much different from a container garden. You have some small outdoor surface, and some few potted plants to let everyone know that this is where your home meets the beautiful natural world.


Balcony garden

The Vinca’s are subshrubs or herbaceous, and have some slender trailing stems about 1–2 m (3.3–6.6 ft) long but, not growing more than around 20–70 cm above ground; the stems frequently take root where they touch the ground, enabling the plants to spread widely. The leaves are completely opposite to each other, simple broad lanceolate to when ovate maybe, 1–9 cm long and 0.5–6 cm broad; they are evergreen in four species, but deciduous in the herbaceous. Because the plants are low and spread quickly, the plants are used as groundcover in garden landscapes and container gardens. They are traditionally planted in older cemeteries as an evergreen maintenance-free ground cover. Many cultivars are available, with many varieties of plants, leaf, and flower – colors, sizes, and habits.

How to Grow Vinca:

Vinca will grow in range of light conditions, from full sun to shade. They will do very well in average soils. Both the plants are heat and drought tolerant. This makes Vinca plant ideal in hot, dry parts of the country where other flowers will wither and wilt.
