This deep rosy-scarlet flower is an entirely new color for Vinca, and it holds its intensity even in the midsummer heat that bleaches or fades other blooms! Compact, well-branched, and wonderfully indifferent to heat and drought, Jaio Scarlet Eye is the Vinca you’ll want for the blazing patio, the sun-drenched poolside tubs, and the sizzling-hot garden!
Jaio Scarlet Eye blooms continuously all summer, through the worst weather Mother Nature has to offer. And the old blooms remain on the plants, vibrant for weeks, so that a fully-blooming plant is simply awash in rich color. The blooms are about 2 inches across, flanked by long, pointed, glossy leaves of deep green. Showy and stylish!
The plant reaches a foot high and wide, making it equally well suited for container or garden growth. The habit never gets leggy, and the plants are very uniform in size, so this would be lovely choice to edge the baking-hot driveway, weave along the front of the sunny bed or border, or set in matching pots at an entryway. It blooms just 10 weeks after sowing, so you can expect a very long season of color!
Jaio Scarlet Eye is a 2002 AAS Bedding Plant winner for its unique color, bloom strength, and compact, uniform habit. You will love how it looks in your garden! Pkt is 50 seeds.
