The art of plants comes alive on every Tattoo™ vinca bloom – each petal looks like it is inked or airbrushed with soft brush strokes of dark purple. Adding these novelties to your lineup proves you have your finger on the pulse of what today’s gardener really wants: bold, fun, head-turning colour.
Tattoo is comprised of four unique colours: Black Cherry, Papaya, Raspberry and Tangerine. The black eye and swirl patterns in the flowers are more intense in warmer Summer temperatures. Plus, this uniform, upright series is very floriferous, well branched and outstanding in hot, sunny conditions.
Tattoo blooms display the best colour contrast under warmer conditions with moderate light; colours lighten with increased temperatures and light. Grown under cooler conditions and lower light, colours appear darker overall with less contrast and more purple colouration being expressed.
As vinca are well known for their durable flowering, knockout colour and exceptional heat tolerance in landscapes and containers, it was pertinent to the breeder to reinvigorate this vinca series with a modern upgrade. This goal was certainly achieved, with the Tattoo series winning a Greenhouse Grower Medal of Excellence at Cultivate ’18 for Industry’s Choice – Best New Variety. Tattoo… without a doubt, is the most unique vinca on the market today!
