Madagascar Periwinkle - Catharanthus roseus

I just cannot stop admiring my periwinkle which gives a continuous blooms everyday. They look so rich and glorious and this is one of the plants I enjoy in having them in shady areas. Its leaves will curl during hot, dry days, but they return to normal when watered immediately.

I planned to get more different varieties of this kind which I had earlier but didn't keep the seeds and all is lost. (except this common one)
a) pink petal flower with red dot in the centre (common)
b) pink petal flower with white dot in the centre
b) white petal flower with red dot in the centre
c) white petal flower with white in the centre

There is a new cultivar where its placed in the hanging basket, but I have yet to see the fruit pods. (wonder how its been propagated, probably rooted from cuttings)
