Lesser Periwinkle

Vinca Minor

Over the years herbalists have classified lesser periwinkel as a hemostatic, or agent that stops the flow of blood. Pharmacologists have substantiated this claim and have also found the plant contains substances that reduce blood pressure. The plant's pretty flowers and shiny leaves provide a most attractive ground cover in shady areas.

Lesser periwinkle has been declared "unsafe" by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
