Vinca ‘Jams ‘N Jellies Blackberry’
AAS Flower Award Winner

“A most unique and exciting color,” is one judge’s comment about this stunning vinca that can appear almost black in some settings. The novel color drew many positive comments from both judges and trial visitors. The velvety deep-purple flowers are an excellent accent plant and work beautifully in combination with other flowers that are powder blue, bright pink, white and/or lavender. Mature plants are 12 to 16” tall making them perfect as a medium height divider. The 1½ to 2” dark purple flowers are offset by shiny, deep green foliage creating a striking color combination.
Bred by Kirin Agribio/PanAm Seed Company.
