My vinca is in full bloom along the foundation of the back of our house. It looks rather pretty mixed in with the Lily of Valley right now but they are almost spent. Vinca's will take over for the rest of the summer.
BTW...I think I got rid of my bindweed!
I dug out all the plants from this one bed and DH sprayed Weed B Gone. It literally wilted away. He turned the soil yesterday so we're going to monitor the site for new growth.
A friend of mine came and took all the plants from the bed and I forewarned her of this invasive weed but she was also looking for something to cover a fence line so she didn't have a problem if any of the roots tagged along.
