vinca minor vine / periwinkle
I want to take vinca out of a flower bed in the backyard and put it in flower beds in the front of the house that I have yet to landscape. I'm also considering putting it in the space between the sidewalk and the street, altho I think that area may be too sunny right now. (Eventually, I hope to put a tree or two out there) The front flowerbeds will eventually contain bushes, trees and bulbs. I have three questions (and please feel free to chime in with any other helpful info):
1) I've heard that, because it's so aggressive, vinca should not be planted next to the house. True?
2) I believe that the vinca won't interfere with the bushes and trees, right? What about the bulbs?
3) The front flowerbeds now contain only mulch, which I intend to leave there, as I believe the vinca will spread underneath it just fine; or, should I remove the mulch to allow the vinca to spread more quickly?
Thx so much.
