The Soiree series of flowering vinca (Catharanthus) are some of the best flowering annuals to become available in a long time! I used these in containers and in the ground - all colors grew to about 18" in diameter, and were flower-filled all summer with no deadheading required. These plants are heat tolerant as well. I found that when planted in the ground they looked best in groups of 3. I grew groups in front of my Pugster butterfly bush, and color all summer in that sunny, hot bed by my driveway.
