Vinca

Fantastic groundcover for either damp or dry shade. Vinca minor will root at the leaf nodes so is very useful for tricky situations particularly sloping sites. They are great for underplanting and their trailing habit can be used to great effect in container planting. Consider underplanting Vinca with snowdrops or dwarf narcissi. A variety of pretty colours are available including the ever elegant, white 'Gertrude Jekyll'

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.
