Variegated Vinca major “Expoflora” is the variety we grow. It has stunning cream and green variegated leaves we feel it is prettier than Vinca variegated. Blue flowers are a bonus in spring. Not winter hardy in our zone.

​Another wonderful trailer is Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’ that features yellow leaves all summer with yellow flowers till mid summer. Perennial if the runners root in surrounding soils. Very dense growth.

We grow several different ​Ivy from solid green leaves to variegated green/white or gold/green types. Variegated types do best in more shade area, white/green types struggle in areas of too much sun.

​Here is Ipomea “Marguerite” , a great trailing filler plant with chartreuse leaves that at times will produce a small white flower. Full sun to part sun is great and will keep branches compact yet still long trailing. Shade is also fine but you may experience more lanky growth. Prune as needed to shape plants and to keep Ipomea from overtaking the planter. Watch for aphids and Gold Tortoise Beetles (which eat holes in the leaves).

Also avaible in black, tan and variegated leaf varieties. Keep well watered.
