Wooden pergola for periwinkle from Madagascar

Hi, my wife fell in love with this type of periwinkle from Madagascar:

I would like to make a small wooden pergola on which to grow the plant.
Does anyone have any project ideas for this kynd of plant?

    Will it grow where you live?

    Yes. Of course.  The area of the garden is 50 square feet. The area under the pergola should be used to relax and read a good book. Thanks for your help.

    I'm slightly suspicious of this [ ;) ]  but there are plenty of 'off the peg' pergolas for sale in most countries.....

    I'm not going to watch a long video, but if it's this one, it's not a climber and isn't tall enough to grow over a pergola, and it isn't winter-hardy in most of the UK (needs a minimum of 5-10 degrees C). Of course, the OP may live in a warmer climate than ours. - he/she didn't say.

    I used to grow them in Greece...they indeed don't need a pergola...but I think they just want more clicks on the video 😂

    I'm constantly weeding out periwinkle. And it's not even pink. It's a nice blue
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • I agree with Jenny...Catharanthus roseus.
    A  tender  dwarf shrub.
    Not a climber.
