CORA HYBRID Vinca Seeds

A breakthrough in Vinca breeding Cora is the first series to be resistant to the "sudden death" (aerial Phytophthora) that can hit Vincas in rainy, humid or very hot climates. The Cora series will tolerate and thrive in damp conditions other Vincas cannot. Cora produces large bold bright flowers, and the foliage is thick, dark green and glossy. The handsome 14-16 inch tall plants spread to 22 inches or more across. Coras are the longest flowering Vincas we know; they bloom early and love the heat, but also tolerate cool autumn temperatures, flowering right up until frost.

Exceptional performance in Texas heat has convinced the Dallas Arboretum to add Cora Cascade vincas to the "Flameproof" Plants list.
