Comments:

'Pacifica Burgundy Halo' is the first vinca with a stunning burgundy halo surrounding a large white center. This bicolor flower is a vivid contrast, exceptionally visible in an annual garden. It has early flowering with a well balanced plant form, and is highly recommended for spring or summer plantings. It has proven heat and drought tolerance. In a full sun garden location, these vinca plants will reach a foot tall and wide when mature. Due to the ease of growing and continuous flowering, it is perfectly suitable for any garden or patio planters that receive sun. Because Vinca needs less water than other annuals, planting it in containers means fewer trips with the hose to water. Gardeners can rely on it to provide color all summer without pinching or lots of maintenance.
