Vinca Tattoo Raspberry [45470]

Vinca Tattoo Raspberry

Catharanthus roseus

Vinca need a very warm climate to grow and in NZ mostly that would be up north of Auckland, however if you have a really warm micro-climate you might like to give growing Vinca a try.



Tattoo Raspberry is especially unique, each petal looks like it inked or airbrushed with soft brush strokes of black. NOTE: Tattoo blooms display the best colour contrast under very warm conditions with higher light; colours brighten with increased temperatures and light. Grown in cooler conditions and lower light, colours appear darker overall with less contrast. Vinca is a stunning plant in hot and sunny conditions, hopefully you are able to give it a try.
