- Growing Annual Vinca From Seed: Gathering And Germinating Seeds Of Vinca
By Mary H. Dyer - Friday Jun 16, 2017
By Mary H. Dyer, Master Naturalist and Master Gardener Also known as rose periwinkle or Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus), annual vinca is a versatile little stunner with shiny green foliage and blooms of pink, white, rose, red, salmon or purple. Although this plant isn’t frost-hardy, you can grow it as a perennial if you live in USDA plant hardiness zones 9 and above. Collecting vinca seeds from mature plants isn’t difficult, but growing annual vinca from seed is a little trickier. Read on to learn how. How to Gather Vinca Seeds When collecting vinca seeds, look for long, narrow, green seedpods hidden on the stems beneath blooming flowers.

If you wait too long, the pods will split and you’ll lose the seeds. Drop the pods

By Mary H. Dyer - Wednesday Jun 7, 2017
By Mary H. Dyer, Master Naturalist and Master Gardener Allium, known for its pungent aroma, includes more than 500 species, including the familiar onion, garlic, chives and a variety of beautiful flowering plants. Pollinators love the hardy, long-lasting plants, but deer and other critters usually leave them alone.
