Bedding Plant Award Winner
A really red vinca with a small white center sets this summer flowering vinca apart from all others. The large 2½-inch blooms can cover the basal branching plant throughout the growing season. The glossy green foliage is not attractive to insects or larger mammals such as deer. When grown in a full-sun garden location, 'Jaio Dark Red' plants can attain a mature plant height of 15 inches, spreading up to 20 inches. Extremely heat and drought tolerant, 'Jaio Dark Red' provides constant garden color with minimal care.
