@B. Thomas: That's nice B :) I suppose they will survive..They are also called Madagascar Periwinkle I think !

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

otherwise known as periwinkle. They must be very adaptable to different climates if you can grow them there. Could be a different variety I guess

@grouser: Yes they are also called Madagascar Periwinkle. They grow wild here and are found in plenty !
