Periwinkle Vinca minor spreads readily and is used in gardens as an
attractive ground cover. It has trailing stems with shiny evergreen leaves
arranged in pairs. The flowers have five purple-blue petals that are not
quite symmetrical giving the bloom a pinwheel effect. Plants of the Dogbane
Family (Apocynaceae) have a milky sap like the milkweeds.
