My Cora Vincas and I Thrive


My vincas remind me that I'm as tough as they are. Cora vincas are one of the easiest flowers to grow. Being a dialysis patient, I spend a lot of time indoors in a recliner. I love being outside with my Vincas.


Cora Vinca great solution for very sunny and hot location
