Q.Why Is My Vinca Minor (periwinkle) Not Flowering?

It has been growing in the same place for over 15 years and is very healthy looking, south facing but in the far North of Scotland (Shetland) where we have less sun and it is a colder and harsher environment. I’ve only seen two small flowers that cam out in October!

Here are some articles that will help:
