Flowering vinca, scientifically known as Catharanthus roseus, is a species of flowering plant native to Madagascar. It belongs to the Apocynaceae family and is commonly referred to as periwinkle or Madagascar periwinkle. 


Flowering vinca thrives in full sunlight. It requires at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day to ensure healthy growth and abundant blooms. Make sure to choose a location in your garden that receives ample sunlight throughout the day.

The soil plays a crucial role in the growth of flowering vinca. It prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level. Before planting, amend the soil with organic matter such as compost to improve its fertility and drainage. This will provide the necessary nutrients for the plant's development.

Proper watering is essential for the health of flowering vinca. It is important to maintain a consistent moisture level in the soil, avoiding both overwatering and underwatering. Water the plant deeply, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. This will prevent root rot and promote strong root development.

Applying a balanced fertilizer to flowering vinca can enhance its growth and blooming. Use a slow-release fertilizer with a ratio of 10-10-10 or 14-14-14. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and frequency. Avoid over-fertilization, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flowers.
