Vinca

Vinca

My mother's an elementary school teacher and for this past year's teacher appreciation week, one of the students gave her a Vinca plant. There was absolutely no information on the card that came with this plant! My mother, the Great Killer of Plants, had the poor thing shriveled and brown before she gave it to me -- now, it's green and has bright pink flowers growing, so I'm assuming I've done well by the plant. I just have a few questions: 1. How big is this plant going to get? I don't want to keep it in a tiny pot (it's in an 8" plastic pot now) if it's going to be ginormous in a few weeks! It's grown about 2" in the past two weeks and I'm not sure if that's just due to better quality soil. 2. Is this a specific use for Vinca? The majority of my garden is dedicated to herbs and a soon-to-be vegetable patch. I've never really had much interest in cultivating strictly pretty plants, so I'm curious. Thanks in advance for an information. (:
