Close up of several perennials used within this contained garden and rear bluestone terrace of this major home and landscape renovation. The broad leaves of the Hosta variety looks great against the smaller and slender textures of the surrounding vegetation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Periwinkle
Distinguishing traits. What makes periwinkle so popular is its ability to cover large areas with glossy green leaves. They have great variation from dark green to light, depending on how the sunlight is hitting them, and they look especially good with other evergreens, ferns and hostas.There are many varieties of Vinca minor that will vary in height, leaf size and color, and flower color and size.
