A rare selection with clumps of silvery variegated grey-green leaves on arching stems to 20cm high, 40cm wide. Double blue flowers in spring. Slow growing

A real contrast to most Vinca, 'Silver Service' is a choice perennial that you will need to give a decent spot in the shade to. It really is quite slow and tends to make fairly tidy clumps with little spread unless you look after it very well!

The double blue flowers are fairly small and some petals are poorly shaped but that just adds character and charm. The neat variegated foliage is good enough without the flowers anyway.

Decent soil in shade. Works well in a pot standing on a wall, plinth or another upturned pot to show off the trailing foliage.
