In Arkansas, the pink, white or magenta-flowered drought-resistent annual
commonly called vinca or periwinkle (interchangeably) has lately fallen
prey to an annoying blight when planting in mass. Our State Capitol
groundskeeper abandoned the stuff altogether last summer because he
couldn't keep it healthy.
While I can imagine it interplanted in a loosely packed bed of TBs, it
bushes too much for use in a densely-populated iris border, such as we
commonly see here.
Little Rock, Arkansas, USDA Zone 7b
257 feet above sea level,
average rainfall about 50 inches (more than 60" in '97)
average relative humidity (at 6 a.m.) 84%.
moderate winters, hot summers ... but lots of seesaw action in all seasons
