Periwinkle
Vinca minor
Uses: Medicinal/Poisonous! Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 4-8)
Excellent choice for a shady groundcover, with eye catching violet-blue flowers that pop in contrast to its dark glossy foliage. Tolerates a variety of soil conditions, but requires good drainage. Thrives in shade but can tolerate some partial sun. Incredibly useful for erosion control as a vigorous creeper that can spread out 8 feet across! Medicinally, Periwinkle is known for its astringency, which allows it to help relieve diarrhea, hemorrhaging, excessive menstrual flow and aid in inflammation of the urinary tract. Spread must be managed and controlled! Height 3-6 inches.
