A beauty the flower for some reason reminds me of a windmill.

I have only ever had the Vinca Major. I quite like this one.

Thank you all :)

Yes it looks like the sails of a windmill to me also Thrupennybit :)

I also have a variegated blue variety Rose. They won't grow in my soil so I keep them in pots. I haven't got the 'major' one.

Very nice, I like the Vinca genus, keeping them in pots keeps them contained.

It was Willow Cottage where I had the major one Hywel, and it was in the woodland garden and totally took over it.
I am hoping when I brought all the plants from the last move , that I have your Salvia. Can't remember what the leaves were like so time will tell !

Thank you both ...

I don't remember the Salvia Rose. I haven't got any of those, I can't seem to grow them. maybe it was something else. Anyway I hope you brought all the plants you wanted to keep.

I love Vinca, it has happy layered itself, but I do keep it under control....

I keep them under control by growing them in pots.
