- Tough, dependable ground cover
- Deep green foliage on long stems
- Single, pure white flowers early May through the summer
- Effective at holding soil
Dependability is this tough groundcover's middle name, but don't think just because it so tolerant that it lacks anything in the beauty department! You'll love its deep green foliage on long stems that bunch together to form a flowing thicket-like mat which provides a perfect backdrop for waves of single, pure white flowers that bloom in early May and keep appearing intermittently well into the summer. Like all Vinca, 'Alba' loves a shady spot and is remarkably effective at growing, spreading and holding the soil in spots where it seems as if you can't get anything to grow. Its carefree nature and great looks make it a must for any difficult shade spot in your landscape.
