Periwinkle...yes or no??
I have a wonderful lady in my neighborhood that has given me flowers out of her flowerbeds earlier this summer and now wants me to come by again and get more of whatever I would like. My flowerbed is only in its second year, but I feel like I've made a lot of progress.
I currently have a crepe myrtle tree (Catawba), pink double knockout roses, pink and purple verbena, various salvias, sedum autumn joy, columbine, yarrow, gladiolas, stella de oro daylilies, creeping phlox, tall phlox, and boxwood shrubs.
My question is would you add periwinkle to this bed? My neighbor's front flowerbed is full of beautiful pink and white periwinkle, but I'm afraid of it overtaking and smothering out my other plants. I know it will be one thing she will offer me, but I want to be careful about planting something I will later regret.
Thank you for any advice you may have!!
