Vinca Minor as a hosta garden mulch
If you tell me not to do it, I won't. I have a huge area of Vinca Minor and it occured to me that maybe it could be a good natural ground cover in a new hosta bed I made in the fall. I plan to put down hay between the plants but wonder if the Vinca is a workable idea.
I don't use it anyplace else because it takes over but what about in a hosta bed? I tried Lamium 'White Nancy' in another bed and it grew right up over the hostas. Ditto for Johnnie Jump Ups. Those beds are now mature and self-mulching but this new one won't be there for a few years.
