Periwinkles are Since the few periwinkle seeds that are produced are naked and lack a coma [29] or other adaptations for dispersal, it is unlikely that seeds would survive fire or easily disperse into a burned area. Common periwinkle is native across all of continental Europe as far north as the Baltic States [].Both bigleaf [51,55,92,107] and common [29,42,50,55,97,100,103,117] periwinkle are frequently planted in North America and escape from cultivation. bigleaf periwinkle is an important year-round host to the bacteria causing Pierce's disease, a threat The website also provides access to a database and images of plants photos and herbarium specimens found at … where common periwinkle cover was removed, there was increased survival of native tree seedlings. No information is available on this topic. Common periwinkle may not be problematic at all locations. Staff at the Ramsey Canyon Preserve found that native grasses and shrubs were able to establish in areas where bigleaf periwinkle was removed (Gebow 2009 personal communication [41]). Borne on arching shoots over a long season, large violet-blue flowers, 2 in. Common periwinkle also grows well in open habitats [68,101] including coastal dunes [24], In all cases where invasive species are targeted for control, no matter what method is employed, the potential for other invasive species to fill their void must be considered [15]. It contains the alkaloid "vincamine", which is used by the pharmaceutical industry as a … Researchers in Belgium looked at the spread of common periwinkle from forest relicts into establishing forests ranging from approximately 20 to 120 years old. dune successional forests in Michigan, sites with common periwinkle had significantly fewer native tree Ponderosa pine-Gambel oak (southern Rockies and Southwest), Fire adaptations and plant response to fire, Guide to noxious weed prevention practices, LANDFIRE Rapid Assessment Vegetation Models, Northern hardwood maple-beech-eastern hemlock, Elevation for sites with periwinkles in their nonnative ranges, Average annual rainfall for sites with periwinkles in their nonnative ranges, Fire regime information on vegetation communities in which, Incorporate cost of weed prevention and management into fire rehabilitation plans, Include weed prevention education in fire training, Minimize soil disturbance and vegetation removal during fire suppression and rehabilitation activities, Minimize the use of retardants containing nitrogen and phosphorus, Avoid areas dominated by high priority invasive plants when locating firelines, monitoring camps, staging areas, Fire regimes: be encouraged. Look-alikes: may be confused with several close relatives of this plant, including bigleaf periwinkle (Vinca major), imported from Europe, and Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus), native only to Madagascar, both also invasive in natural areas in the mid-Atlantic and other parts of the United States; and winter creeper (Euonymus fortunei). species may occur by entering the species' names in the FEIS home page under "Find Fire Regimes". ), maples (Acer spp. shrub and tree seedlings (reviews by [80,111]). for specific community associations of bigleaf and common periwinkle. In North America, periwinkles are found in plant communities that historically experienced long (e.g., northern hardwood, southern floodplain forests) and short (e.g., Appalachian oak-hickory-pine forests) fire-return intervals (see the Fire Regime Table). In an uneven-aged suburban forest near Atlanta, Georgia, common periwinkle occurred with overstory yellow-poplar, white oak, hickories, loblolly pine, American beech, and northern red oak [40]. In Arizona, bigleaf periwinkle occurred near dwellings, covering steep banks and rock walls in a riparian canyon bottom. ), cottonwoods (Populus spp. The first and and vulnerability of stolons to fire and suggest that periwinkles are not well-adapted fire. In the forest habitat, Populus x canescens, Tradescantia fluminensis and Vinca major can be considered outliers of one particular plot near the ruins of Paradise, a settlement in Newlands Forest dating to the 18th century. Guide to noxious weed prevention practices Bigleaf periwinkle seedlings were found in riparian areas in California [21], though seedlings are rarely found in the field (review by [7]). Native Lookalikes: Currently no information available here yet, or there are no native Texas species that could be confused with Bigleaf periwinkle. that periwinkles readily sprout after fire [79], though no specific information is given in regard to fire conditions, fire severity, periwinkle The bigleaf periwinkle (Vinca major L.) is a perennial herbaceous species belonging to the Apocinaceae family. Currently, it is known to have spread from plantings in 9 counties in Indiana (per Overlease and Yatskievych); however, the spread is minor (no more than 25 sq. Physical or mechanical control: See Impacts for more information about vegetative rate of spread in periwinkles. Consequently, impacts may vary depending on location. ), alders (Alnus spp. Bigleaf periwinkle occurred in a canyon bottom at The Nature Conservancy's Ramsey Canyon Preserve. ft. in most cases) and limited to disturbed areas. The leaves are opposite, nearly orbicular at the base of the stems and lanceolate at the apex, 3–9 cm long and 2–6 cm broad, glossy dark green with a leathery texture and an entire but distinctly ciliate margin, and a hairy petiole 1–2 cm long. Regular monitoring of existing periwinkle populations is recommended to minimize potential impacts. GENERAL DISTRIBUTION; HABITAT TYPES AND PLANT COMMUNITIES; GENERAL DISTRIBUTION: Bigleaf periwinkle is native to Mediterranean Europe [1,4], Asia Minor [], and northern Africa (review by []). Flowers are infrequently white. A review states that bigleaf periwinkle grows most vigorously in moist soil with only partial sun but may grow in deep shade with "poor" soil [7]. Vinca major is a commonly grown ornamental plant in temperate gardens for its evergreen foliage, spring flowers, and groundcover or vine use. As of this writing (2009), there was very little information available pertaining to periwinkle response to fire. It prefers moist undergrowth, woodlands, hedgerows and banks along the rivers at an altitude of 0–800 metres (0–2,625 ft) above sea level. While no specific biological control programs existed for periwinkles as of 2009, common periwinkle is susceptible to fungal foliar diseases that cause leaf and steam lesions and stem death [63]. tests suggested that common periwinkle allelopathy limited native woody tree seedling growth but not Vinca major, commonly known as bigleaf periwinkle, may have lovely purplish-blue flowers, but the invasive vine can quickly take over habitat of native plant communities. native to Europe and western Asia hardy to zone 4 can be grown in colder regions with snow cover Special Note: This species has demonstrated an invasive tendency in Connecticut, meaning it may escape from cultivation and naturalize in minimally managed areas. As of 2003, periwinkle seed viability in the field was unknown (review by [72]). managers in riparian and wetland areas of the south and central coasts of California [33]. *Note– Vinca major, big leaf periwinkle, was also discussed as part of this assessment. Common periwinkle infestation. Common periwinkle seeds are dispersed by ants in its native range [54,56]. common periwinkle formed at only one site despite its establishment in several locations [17]. It exhibits a trailing mat, prostrate mat or mounding mat growth habit and has a medium growth rate. Periwinkles form mats and extensive infestations even under forest canopies ([32], review by [72]). The plants of this genus belong to the family, Apocynaceae. In southeastern Ohio, common periwinkle occurred in grassy meadows along roadsides and in fields. seedlings than paired sites without common periwinkle (P=0.0045). Repeated application of flame with a blowtorch in the rainy season was used to control bigleaf periwinkle at the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve in California. Both bigleaf ([39,114], review by [7]) and common [98] periwinkle are damaged by some herbicides. The authors attributed this pattern to Black cherry and northern red oak were also present [17]. Immediate fire effect on plant: However, postfire vegetative spread of periwinkles had not been documented as of 2009. Periwinkles are found on soils with a range of characteristics. ), and clover (Trifolium spp.). In Michigan, common periwinkle occurred in large patches in a dune successional forest dominated by mature American A population of bigleaf periwinkle in a riparian area at the Ramsey Canyon Preserve allegedly suppressed natural erosion, which in turn altered local hydrology and vegetation (review by [10]). The ability of periwinkles to establish and spread is inconsistent throughout their nonnative ranges. young woods (<30 years since canopy closure), The mixed-mesophytic forests contained red maple, sugar maple, shagbark hickory (Carya ovata), American beech, green ash (F. pennsylvanica), yellow-poplar, black cherry, and northern red oak [47]. At an "ancient" archeological site in the oak-beech forest region of France, common periwinkle was most abundant in disturbed areas including abandoned homesites, enclosures, and agricultural terraces, but was also found to a lesser extent in areas that showed no archeological evidence of human disturbance [35]. (see Regeneration Processes) Bigleaf periwinkle is native to Mediterranean Europe [1,4], Asia Minor [], and northern Africa (review by []). In its nonnative range, common periwinkle may persist for decades, with single clones spreading vegetatively and covering "large areas" of the forest understory (review by [81]). Many cultivars are available, with different plant, leaf, and flower colors, sizes, and habits. major. One review states that bigleaf periwinkle does not reproduce by seed in the wild in California [7], though occasional seedlings have been found [21]. One review states that common periwinkle does not spread to new areas by seed in its nonnative range [81]. Common periwinkle rarely produces seeds [45,113]. The riparian area was closely bordered by ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), and several species of oaks (Arizona white oak (Q. arizonica), shrub live oak (Q. turbinella), Gambel oak (Q. gambelii), and Emory oak (Q. emoryi)) [70]. The tendency of periwinkles to form dense mats under forest canopies (review by [72]) may lead to Seed banking: follicles In Tennessee, common periwinkle formed dense mats in the understory of a second-growth oak-hickory (Carya spp.) Vinca vine (Vinca major) lends its long, trailing stems to gardens in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 to 9, where it often serves as a container plant or ground cover. Common periwinkle occurs in forest understories [9,32,37,40,60,67,88,112] including successional [17,28,32,47,67] and mature [88] forests. Bigleaf periwinkle often occurs in riparian forest understories [4,70,71,112]. is to avoid planting it, particularly in areas where periwinkles are known to establish outside of cultivation. In Canada, common periwinkle was rated as "a limited invasive of a local nature that is stable" [115]. In its nonnative range, common periwinkle occurs on acid soils [18,68,88].

Habitat; IUCN category; Presidential Decree 67/81; Distribution. A study from Yosemite National Park, California, documents bigleaf periwinkle occurring at very low abundance in a single plot that burned sometime between 1930 and 1999. In this review, species are referred to by their common names, and "periwinkles" refers to both species. However, light competition from common periwinkle was thought to be more important Find further fire regime information for the plant communities in which these There is limited information on seed banking in periwinkles. As of 2009, no information was available regarding fire effects on or heat tolerance of periwinkle seeds. See the Weed control methods handbook [102] for considerations on the use of herbicides in natural areas and detailed information on specific chemicals. In the northern Diablo Range, bigleaf periwinkle occurred in oak (Quercus spp.) This species prefers shaded habitats and is a weed of urban bushland, open woodlands, watercourses (i.e. This has led to the plant being declared as invasive in states like California ( V. major ), and many Eastern states ( V. minor ) such as Kentucky, … In the United States, bigleaf periwinkle has a U-shaped distribution from New York and Massachusetts in the east, south to Georgia, west to California, and north to Washington. Periwinkle flowers are violet to blue-lavender, with 5 petals radiating pinwheel-like at It was restricted to the "shade zone" provided by a riparian tree canopy dominated by Arizona sycamore (Gebow 2009 personal communication [41]). Common periwinkle may replace native species ([28,32], review by [25]). Dominant trees of the islands included live oak (Q. virginiana), water oak (Q. nigra), sweetgum, pignut hickory, sugarberry (Celtis laevigata), and loblolly pine. As of 2008, periwinkles covered an estimated 29,254 acres (11,839 ha) across 12 southern states, with the majority of cover in Virginia (14, 419 acres (5835 ha)) [73]. seed germination. See the In the Huachuca Mountains, bigleaf periwinkle occurred in a mixed-broadleaf riparian forest with Arizona sycamore, bigtooth maple (A. grandidentatum), velvet ash (F. velutina), and gray oak (Q. grisea) [83]. If periwinkle spread introduces novel fuel properties to the invaded ecosystem, fire behavior, and potentially fire regime, may be altered (see these citations: [14,26]). Periwinkles are "fairly deep-rooted" (review by [79]). While some sources suggest common periwinkle prefers fertile soil ([28], review by [25]), one source states that common periwinkle tolerates soils of low fertility [68]. Vinca major, with the common names bigleaf periwinkle, large periwinkle, greater periwinkle and blue periwinkle, is a species of flowering plant in the family Apocynaceae, native to the western Mediterranean. "unhealthy", diseased, and dying pallid manzanita plants in some areas [107]. Periwinkle moves from place to place, with unintentional human help, in dumped garden waste or as plant fragments carried along in water. Limitations to periwinkle growth have been infrequently documented. In the northern Diablo Range of California, bigleaf periwinkle The Common periwinkle plants in western Montana exhibited fibrous roots ranging from 1 to 3 inches (3-8 cm) long [96]. Starch stored in bigleaf periwinkle roots may facilitate growth after herbicide treatments or manual removal of aboveground biomass [11]. Common periwinkle occurs in every state in Botanical description: No information is available on the dispersal of bigleaf periwinkle seeds. One review reports that hot, dry weather may cause bigleaf periwinkle death [7]. IoI NPi SPi Pe StE EC NC NE NAe WAe Kik KK EAe . The stems contain a milky latex and shiny, dark green leaves that are 2-3cm long, opposite, round ovate, and pinnately (having parts arranged on each side of a common axis) veined. FIRE EFFECTS: last frosts in this region occur in early April and late October, respectively [55]. It grows well in full sun and in deep shade. Evergreen to semievergreen vines, somewhat woody, trailing or scrambling to 3 feet (1 m) long and upright to 1 foot (30 cm). lying beneath the soil surface are probably only top-killed. Periwinkle seedlings and small infestations may be easy to pull or dig out. ), ashes (Fraxinus spp. It is very likely that these plants were … In southeastern Ohio, common periwinkle was a "frequent" species in mesic ravines, stream terraces, and The maximum rate at which common periwinkle spread was 98 feet (30 m) in a century; it averaged 52 feet (16 m) in a century [54]. A number of sources suggest that periwinkles may be controlled by raising stolons with a rake and mowing (reviews by [7,81]). Vinca major. Periwinkles are somewhat drought tolerant; a review suggests that bigleaf periwinkle is more tolerant of drought than common periwinkle [79]. to resist invasion by undesirable vegetation, Monitor burned areas and areas of significant disturbance or traffic from management activity, Detect weeds early and eradicate before vegetative spread and/or seed dispersal, Eradicate small patches and contain or control large infestations within or adjacent to the burned area, Reestablish vegetation on bare ground as soon as possible, Avoid use of fertilizers in postfire rehabilitation and restoration, Use only certified weed-free seed mixes when revegetation is necessary. Common periwinkle generally flowers from between March and June depending on location [4,29,42,45,50,78,97]. [4]. Forested: Bigleaf periwinkle was limited to shady areas of a riparian canyon bottom at the Ramsey Canyon Preserve (Gebow 2009 personal communication [41]). In laboratory studies, common periwinkle seeds exhibited an "extended dormancy period"; 70% germination occurred after 30 days using a combination of acid scarification and 90-day cold stratification. This species is found in southern Europe and northern Africa, from Spain and southern France east to the western Balkans, and also in northeastern Turkey and the western Caucasus. Lesser Periwinkle, Vinca minor, is similar but smaller and with less upright growth.They can be easily separated by examining the edges of the leaves: Vinca major have hairy edges whilst Vinca … Cold weather may damage bigleaf periwinkle (review by [7]), though one population in Ohio survived 2 of "the most severe winters of the past century, those of 1976 to 1977 and 1977 to 1978" Two of the species, Vinca major and Vinca minor, are extensively cultivated as a flowering evergreen ornamental plant. across (5 cm), appear in mid-spring and continue to flower intermittently throughout summer into fall. Caudex or an herbaceous root crown, growing points in soil In New York County, New York, common periwinkle occurred in successional forests of yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), northern red oak, and white oak [67]. common periwinkle's lack of an active dispersal mechanism [44]. It is discontinuously distributed in the western United States, occurring in Nebraska, Kansas, Texas, Arizona, Utah, Oregon, Washington, and Montana. Climate: It grows well in full sun and in deep shade. It is not known what type of fire regime periwinkles are best adapted to. Periwinkle fruits are slender, cylindrical Fire adaptations and plant response to fire: One review states The species name major refers to the larger size in respect of the similar Vinca minor L. Vinca major is a trailing vine, spreading along the ground and rooting along the stems to form dense masses of groundcover individually 2–5 m across and scrambling up to 50–70 cm high. It is most often seen spreading from old home sites. Bigleaf periwinkle may spread with "great rapidity" (review by [7]). Quantitative data on the rate of spread of Vinca are not available from the literature. Seedling establishment and plant growth: Documentation of periwinkle establishment by seed is rare. However, staff at the Ramsey Canyon Preserve believed these impacts were unsubstantiated (Gebow 2009 personal communication [41]). Few authors report climate data for sites with periwinkles; therefore, the climate data presented here may not represent climatic conditions throughout the nonnative ranges of periwinkles. Rate of spread: Common periwinkle also occurs along forest edges ([37], review by [25]), within second-growth forest [32], and in fields or meadows [77,78,90].
