This pink flowered trailing plant is a cultivar of the Vinca rosea (synonym: Catharanthus roseus; common name: Madagascar Periwinkle, Rose Periwinkle) from the Apocynaceae Family.

The cultivars are usually very sensitive to overwatering and die easily when the water requirements are not managed properly. But when it is, and especially when it is well-fertilized, this is how amazingly it looks - healthy with compact green leaves and abundant beautiful flowers.
