Vinca Jams and Jellies Blackberry

About this time of year,
I start to think about fall flowers.
Fall flowers here will grow and bloom up until November, generally.
So it seems like a good idea to plant some flowers 
that will look festive around Halloween.
Usually people buy orange marigolds and chrysanthemums in autumn colors .
And if they've planned ahead,
they will also have planted some of the dark purple-black sweet potato vine.

But I was in the garden center recently 
and ran across a nearly black vinca, a dark purple color I'd never seen before,
called Jams and Jellies Blackberry.
That name is so delicious you could practically eat it.
