    It's Vinca (periwinkle).  I think Vinca major rather than Vinca minor, judging by the upright shoots, but I'm not certain on that.

    Yes, Vinca and can be quite evasive and spread but a good weed suppresser

    Does anybody grow Vinca minor in a shady area? I'm thinking of "risking" it with one of the white-flowered versions as I think it would look good under trees.

    Will grow anywhere in dry or wet soil, in mainly part to complete shade
