Is Myrtle a Flower or Weed?

Vinca minor is a species of flowering plant in the dogbane family, native to central and southern Europe. It is part of the Periwinkle family and also known as Myrtle. It is a fast growing vine and loves to climb so you have to be diligent in thinning and controlling it annually. In the spring you are rewarded with a carpet of beautiful blue flowers.
