Vinca, Heatwave Raspberry
(Catharanthus roseus) A tropical perennial (hardy in zones 9-11) mostly grown as an annual. It is a dwarf bedding vinca with dazzling raspberry-colored blooms. This delicate-looking flower is one of the most heat- and drought-tolerant blooms we have seen! The compact plants reach about 8 inches tall and 8 to 12 inches wide. They will endure intense heat, humidity and can tolerate full sun. Excellent in pots, beds, borders, and planted en masse.
