Vinca (Catharanthus roseus) is an annual bedding plant which originated from Madagascar. It is a tough plant to grow because it requires higher air (up to 85˚F) and substrate (not less than 70˚F) temperatures than other plants, a low fertility, high porosity substrate, high relative humidity and high light. Gardeners choose Vinca because it is relatively drought-tolerant and performs well in dry and hot locations exposed to full sun. Another important benefit of this plant is that it flowers during the entire summer.Vinca flowers come in a wide variety of colors such as red, dark red, white, pink, light pink, and purple. Also known as the Madagascar periwinkle, annual vinca plants are of the genus Cartharanthus, a member of the Apocynaceae family. It is also called Periwinkle flowers. This plant is known by three names: Vinca, Periwinkle (or Madagascar Periwinkle), and Myrtle. Botanists will tell you that there is also a separate strain or variety of Periwinkle. Vinca plants are native to North America, Europe, China and India.

Types of Vincas

In general, there are three types of Vincas: creeping (spreads 8-10 inches), dwarf (10-14 inches tall) and a border type (bigger flowers and 14-20 inches tall). In this article, the focus will be on the latter two types in which there are several series, which include: Jams N’ Jellies, Titan, Pacifica XP, Mediterranean, Cooler, Heat Wave, Blue Pearl, Tropicana, Passion, Cora, and others.

Periwinkles are fairly drought tolerant once they are established but grow and bloom best with regular watering.
Vinca Flowers should be fed every two months while they are actively growing, using a good all-purpose fertilizer applied according to label directions. Shear Periwinkle plants back hard in the spring to promote fresh, new growth and to control spread.

Yellow Bells is one of several desert plants that I recommend for people who want desert plants that are perennial. The botanical name for Yellow Bells is Bignoniaceae, Tecoma stans. It is also called the Yellow Elder or Trumpet Bush. Yellow Bells is an evergreen shrub that loves sun and heat. It can be grown in a container. It blooms from late spring through early fall. They are drought resistant, and do well in almost any soil. The Yellow Bells blooms are bright yellow and tubular; they look like elongated bells. This desert plant attracts hummingbirds and bees. The leaves are a vibrant green color. Yellow Bells plants will get to about 12 feet tall, and several feet wide. Yellow bell (Tecoma stans), also known as hardy yellow trumpets, trumpet flower, esperanza or yellow elders, is a flowering shrub. Yellow bells blooms through the challenges nature throws at it. Native to the North American Southwest, this tough plant has spectacular yellow trumpet-shape blooms from late spring through fall.

Phlox Flower in bloom are a sight to behold, with masses of small, star-shaped, colorful flowers blanketing the plants. There are several types, the most common of which are spring-blooming creeping phlox and summer-blooming tall phlox. Phlox is a Greek word meaning ‘flame’ . It was most likely named thusly due to its bright and vivid colors. Phlox originally came from North America and was available in England by the early 1800s. It quickly grew in popularity and today it is still found growing wild in gardens across the country.

Availability
Phlox can self-seed and divide easily in the garden and flowers from garden phlox are available from summer to mid-autumn, depending on the species. Cultivated phlox are available throughout the year.

Species
The genus is phlox and there are 67 species of annuals and shrubs within this genus. The species paniculata is the tall garden plant and some popular varieties include Red Riding Hood, which produces rich cherry-red flowers between mid and late summer and Bright Eyes, which has pink flowers with a dark center.

There are many different colors of Phlox available, although the most common are white, pink, mauve, lavender, blue, orange, red and purple. There are also two-tone phloxes, as well as a number with variegated foliage. Phlox prosper in a cool sunny climate, well-watered, in rich sweet soil. In much of the country, they will thrive in full sun, although partial shade is fine, as long as the plants receive at least 6 hours of direct sun. In the southern or hot climes, partial shade is recommended. The soil should be rich and slightly sweet (alkaline), so if your soil tends towards the acidic side, regular applications of lime is recommended, say every two or three years. The plants should be set in quite rich soil, enriched with compost or aged manure. This type of soil will also hold water well, an important feature, for phlox do not do well in hot dry soils.
