This heat and drought tolerant annual is a native from Madagascar and is not related to the periwinkle groundcover that shares its name. This beautiful annual flower comes in red, pink, white, magenta and purple and grows up to 18 inches tall.

 

When planting put 2 inches of pine bark mini nuggets or pine mulch around the plants to hold in moisture to keep from always having to watering them. Water regularly for the first month, until established and then just when needed. This is a great bedding plant because it is relatively pest and problem free.


This plant commonly reseeds itself so don't be tricked into thinking its perennial. Perennials come back in the same place, from the same root system. This is a reseeding annual and will come up near where it was previously planted.
