Introducing Catharanthus roseus, also known as the Madagascar periwinkle, rose periwinkle or rosy periwinkle. This beautiful flowering plant is native to Madagascar but is grown around the world as an ornamental and medicinal plant. It is a source of the drugs vincristine and vinblastine, which are used to treat cancer. C. roseus is an evergreen subshrub or herbaceous plant that grows up to 1m tall. It is appreciated for its hardiness in dry and nutritionally deficient conditions, making it perfect for subtropical gardens. It has long flowering periods, blooming all year round in tropical conditions, and from spring to late autumn in warm temperate climates. It is toxic if consumed orally by humans but is still widely cultivated and naturalized in subtropical and tropical areas of the world. Show your appreciation for this beautiful plant by adding it to your garden today.
