Description

Stands up to heat, humidity, and rain beautifully, and blooms heavily all summer

This vinca has been two decades in the making. The disease-fighting technology developed for it is so revolutionary that it's actually being patented. Until now, vinca has been prey to "sudden death" in humid, rainy, or very hot climates. Now the cure has been discovered, and Cora is ready to thrive in the most damp and moist conditions without turning a petal. It's a whole new day for this lovely, long-blooming plant.

Cora is a very well-branched, heavy-blooming plant about 14 to 16 inches high and 25 inches wide. The blooms are a neon-bright magenta-fuchsia, and they appear right down to the ground. Flowering heavily all summer (and sometimes in late spring and early fall as well), this plant is eye-catching and very, very easy to grow.

Cora was the only vinca to survive until frost in punishing garden trials in Dallas. After all the freak hot spells and cold snaps of autumn, it alone remained in the garden, briskly growing. This is a plant that can take climate stress of all types in stride.

In addition to punch, there are 6 other single colors and a mix of all 7: apricot, burgundy, violet, pink, lavender, punch and white. Try them all, mix and match your color combinations, or select your favorites. Each color has the same height, width, and bloom time as the others, so they do very well in large mixed plantings.

Give Cora full sun and good soil drainage. It is useful as a bedding plant, border standout, ground cover, and even in containers indoors and out.
