Answer: Vinca minor and Vinca major are both evergreen, vining groundcovers. They're also called Periwinkle. What you're describing sounds more like Vinca rosea (Catharanthus roseus), or Madagascar Periwinkle. The 'Carpet' series has glossy leaves and phloxlike flowers and a compact habit, growing only 4"-8" tall. You can find seeds through Cyberseeds, PO Box 171102, San Antonio, TX 78217-1102.
