Bright golden-yellow leaves with a green margin. Lavender blue spring flowers. This variegated Vinca emerges golden, maturing to soft yellow-cream leaves, attached to red stems.
Best performance in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils. In sunny locations, use more humus and water. Trailing stem nodes root as they quickly spread to form an attractive, dense groundcover. Vinca minor 'Illumination' is a slightly less aggressive variety of Vinca. Cut back if it is too large for a container or to increase branching. Fairly drought tolerant, once established.
A versatile groundcover to brighten shady areas, 'Illumination' will tolerate moderate foot traffic or prevent erosion on banks. Trailing stems are beautiful cascading down slopes, banks, curbs, walls or in hanging baskets, and window boxes. Plus its pest and disease free; rabbit and deer resistant.
