Such a trouble-free delight in the garden, this hale-and-hearty Vinca begins blooming extra-early with big flowers, then just keeps going despite extreme heat, poor soil, and just about any other obstacle Nature throws its way! The Pacifica series is renowned for its ultra-tough performance, and the “halo” colors are its most popular members. Until now they were available only in a mix, but the most beautiful, lovely Burgundy, is now ready to show off all by itself in your sunny garden! It won a 2007 All-America Selection Award, so you know you can’t go wrong.
You will love these uniform, neat, yet very bushy 10- to 12-inch plants, which stay colorful for months on end. The blooms are 2 inches across and held wide open, with a large, eye-catching white center. Much bigger than the tiny “eye” of other varieties, this area is called a “halo” and really does grab your attention! The blooms are held up and out from the fresh, lush foliage, making them a splendid choice for beds, borders, ground cover, and baskets. They even make terrific houseplants during the winter months!
Pacifica blooms luxuriously despite heat and drought, making it a favorite in climates with long, hot, dry summers. A sun-lover, it’s constantly in color from early summer till frost, offering lush foliage as well as plentiful blooms. If you’re a busy gardener with no time to pamper your annuals, Pacifica is the Vinca you MUST grow!
If you like this color, there are many other Pacificas to try. Punch is an intense rose-pink with darker center, and Polka Dot offers white blooms with tiny red eyes — almost the reverse of the halo effect! There’s even a mix of all 14 Pacifica colors!
