This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Madagascar periwinkles in the Sun Devil Extreme Series are well-branched mounding tropical evergreen shrubs that are grown as tender perennials in temperate climates. Amazingly heat and drought tolerant with excellent resistance to fungal problems, 'Sun Devil Extreme Mix' includes everblooming plants that bear large, radial, five-petaled flowers in a mix of lavender, coral-pink, white, and light pink. Most have a white blotch in the center called an eye.
Plant these tough ornamentals in sunny beds and borders or containers. In tropical regions they can be planted in mixed shrub borders or near building foundations and the ocean. Madagascar periwinkle fails in soggy, heavy soils and will suffer from root rot in poorly drained conditions. Plants will reseed themselves, and in warm regions can be considered invasive as they will grow in poor, warm soils in marginal areas.
