All I know that this flower is called Vinca, but after blog hopping I read about the same flower in another blog, and she called it periwinkle. To clear my confusion, I had to searched the internet and had found out that this flowering plant can be called either vinca or periwinkle.
This flowers are quite abundant around the house (newly rented house), at first I wondered how this plants had multiplied. I can see them almost anywhere inside our perimeter then I realized that this plant has seeds. Hubby found a jar full of seeds at the back of the house. Although some variety can be propagated by cuttings but most of them are grown with seeds.
I wished there are other varieties available, but as of now we have the pure white and the fuchsia pink variety.

A very common plant in the neighborhood with a striking dark pink to red color flowers, evergreen leaves and succulent stem is called "the dessert rose", also called kalachuchi by others. This houseplant is indeed very attractive especially during summer where the flowers are abundantly blooming.
Just like the picture above that I have photographed at my brother's house. One of my mom's cultivated dessert rose.
