The first blue-flowered Catharanthus rosea is an AAS Winner named ‘First Kiss Blueberry.’ The large 2-inch single blooms have a darker eye which accentuates the violet blue color. For decades breeders have been diligently working towards a blue Vinca. Now ‘First Kiss Blueberry’ fills the color void. Gardeners will look for ‘First Kiss Blueberry’ plants to add to their collection. Proven to be heat and drought tolerant, mature plants will be about 11 inches tall and spread 16 inches, given adequate growing conditions. Easy to grow from plants, ‘First Kiss Blueberry’ can be grown in patio containers or combination planters.
