common periwinkle "Alba"

lesser periwinkle "Alba"

Small, carpet forming, prostrate evergreen perennial (H 10-15 cm, W 30-60 cm), spreads well. Stems thin, green, eventually partially woody at the base. Leaves narrowly ovate (2-4 cm), somehow leathery, smooth, glossy, dark green, lighter beneath. Flowers numerous, individual, simple, star-shaped (2,5-3 cm), snow white. Flowering period: April-June, eventually untill autumn. Undemanding, well-growing ground-covering plant. Requires moderately dry to moist, humus-rich soils. Easily withstands urban conditions, occasional drought, cold and deep shadow.
  • Herbaceous plants are not woody. Their stems are soft, usually remaining green. With some herabceous older stems may harden and look like woody stems (e. g. bamboo).

  • Herbaceous, not woody plant. Stems and leaves may be evergreen or deciduous - thus regrowing every spring. Perennials may blossom consecutively for several years. Some perennials develop special underground organs - bulbs, corms or rootstocks and these species are treated separetelly, not with geophyte and tuberous plants.

  • Leaves or needles remain on the plant for several consecutive years, usually 2 to 5 years. Our descriptions contain the word evergreen.

  • Plant can in otherwise appropriate environment survive cold down to - 23 °C.

  • Plants from this group grow equally good in different positions, regardless of solar radiation. Usually they need more moisture in sunny than in shady undergorwth and they can bloom more exuberant.

  • Porous or dry soils are normally light and loose, there is no stagnant water but relatively quickly flows in deeper layers; such ground are more airy and warmer, yet drier and usually contain less humus and for such undergrowth it is often to for drought to appear (e. g. rockgardens, walls, by paths and roads, on gravel, also on gravel surface in towns and close to buildings ...), plants of such undergrowth need well-drained soil, they tolerate drought but cannot tolerate constant moisture or even flooding.

  • Among described plants in this category we marked those, which are particulary resistant (to various environmental conditions), do not require much maintanance and thereby suitable fot planting in public areas.
