This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Pacifica Polka Dot vinca is an exceptionally heat-tolerant tropical evergreen shrub that is grown as a tender perennial or bedding annual in temperate climates. Especially heat and drought tolerant, 'Pacifica Polka Dot' is everblooming and bears large, showy, circular flowers of pure white with a small, crisp, magenta-pink central eye. It is well branched and excessive summer heat will not not cause the flower petals to elongate.
Plant this tough, sun-loving ornamental in beds, borders or containers and in butterfly and seaside gardens. In tropical regions it can be planted in mixed shrub borders or along a building foundation. Madagascar periwinkle dislikes "wet feet" and will suffer from root rot in poorly drained soils. It has a tendency to reseed itself, potentially becoming invasive in warm regions with light soils. Do not overwater this plant.
