CATHARANTHUS roseus 'Titan Rose'( TITAN SERIES)
Madagascar Periwinkle, Titan Rose Vinca, Vinca
The pretty 'Titan Rose’ has large rose-pink flowers with white eye, a neat mounded habit and blooms profusely. It is offered by the Ball Horticultural Company and can easily be grown from seed.
Vinca, or Madagascar periwinkle, is a tropical evergreen shrub that is grown as a tender bedding plant in temperate climates. It is a highly heat and drought tolerant ornamental that blooms continuously and bears showy, radial, five-petaled blooms of rose throughout the growing season. Its glossy small dark green leaves are dense, lush and equally attractive.
Vinca grows best in sites with full to partial sun and poor to average, well-drained soil. Plant this tough ornamental in sunny beds and borders or containers, as well as seaside. Madagascar periwinkle dislikes "wet feet" and will suffer from root rot in poorly drained soils. It is known to reseed itself and in warm regions with light soils can become invasive.
