Tropical house plant that will probably not be happy about sharing it’s space with a bunch of flowers and vines… does well indoors and grows to a height of up to 5 feet (if it has some room… unlike mine!)
The Hibiscus flower will also not do well with the crowding, but hey I was thinking small time, IE: one season. (I am assuming you now what a Hibiscus flower looks like, therefore no pic)
Has a lot in common with the regular Common Periwinkle. Both are excellent forms of ground cover, offering support and moisture for flowerbeds as well as adding stability for the surrounding soil. Both versions are low-growing evergreen vines, rarely topping 12 inches in height but spreading out much wider.
