Madagascar Periwinkles

At one glance, these plants look quite ordinary.

To me, they are extraordinary because they were cultivated with my bare hands, starting as tiny seeds that popped out from their moms. It took me about 4 continuous months of watering, pruning, cutting and repotting before they finally bloom.

If you look very carefully, there are actually about 3 to 4 different colors. There is one local breed, easily identifiable with the absence of any white spots in the centre.
