Catharanthus roseus - Vinca/Madagascan Periwinkle

Catharanthus roseus - Vinca/Madagascan Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus - Vinca/Madagascan Periwinkle)

This plant is over 2 years old and still blooming...generally they live about 3 to 5 year before I have to replace them. It should stop blooming by Christmas or the New Year...depending on the weather.

Do you have to replace them because they stop flowering or because they become too large ?
I agree with Panther. I love white flowers. Very pretty :o)

They become ratty most areas of the United States they're grown as annuals.

They do reseed though.
