Jaio Dark Red Vinca Seeds

(P) Pkt of 50 seeds
Item #02160-PK-P1


Heat- and drought-loving favorite | Colorful over a long summer season

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2003

This deep rosy-scarlet flower holds its intensity even in the midsummer heat that bleaches or fades other blooms. Compact, well-branched, and wonderfully indifferent to heat and drought, Jaio Dark Red Vinca is the vinca you'll want for the blazing patio, the sun-drenched poolside tubs, and the sizzling-hot garden.

Jaio Dark Red Vinca blooms continuously all summer, through the worst weather Mother Nature has to offer. And the old blooms remain on the plants, vibrant for weeks, so that a fully-blooming plant is simply awash in rich color. The blooms are about 2 inches across, flanked by long, pointed, glossy leaves of deep green. Showy and stylish.

Jaio Dark Red Vinca reaches a foot high and wide, making it equally well suited for container or garden growth. The habit never gets leggy, and the plants are very uniform in size, so this would be a lovely choice to edge the baking-hot driveway, weave along the front of the sunny bed or border, or set in matching pots at an entryway. Jaio Dark Red Vinca blooms just 10 weeks after sowing, so you can expect a very long season of color.

Jaio Scarlet Eye is an All-America Selections Bedding Plant Winner for its unique color, bloom strength, and compact, uniform habit. You will love how it looks in your garden.

A favorite annual

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I get good germination every year and it's an excellent, colorful addition to a flower garden that gets hot, dry weather. Nothing seems to bother it. Plus....it often reseeds the next season.

It'd grows but slowly

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

They are still in their green foliage stage. Not blooming flowers. It may take some time but so far so good. It's almost August and I thought these were summer plants. Mine are potted so maybe that has something to do with it.
