Take a closer look at this flower’s elegant geometry!  A white circle in a pentagon, surrounded by five asymmetric petals – like a fan or a propeller.  This is the periwinkle.  It’s great for erosion control and is also used as a spreading shrub or grown as a ground cover.  The periwinkle plant takes its common name from the tiny attractive blooms that dot yards in April and May, appearing in the color of periwinkle blue.
