Q.Can Flowering Vinca Planted Last Year Be Cut Back In The Spring To Bloom Again?

Zone 85007 | Anonymous added on January 23, 2022 | Answered

I live in Phoenix, AZ. I planted white vinca with a red center in a flower bed which gets full sun. It is late January, and it is still blooming, although the blooms are smaller. If I cut them back in March, and apply Miracle Grow, will the continue to bloom this summer? I have had luck with vinca in pots by doing this.
