    Large, blue-violet or dark violet flowers on arching shoots from April to September and dark green leaves with creamy-white margins.

Flowering best in full sun, it's a useful low-maintenance choice for sloping banks that are hard to mow.

“Cast your own winter sunshine with this splashed gold and green periwinkle with the pale-blue, spring flowers - restricted by curtailing by long overhead runners”
