Madagascar Periwinkle (SadaBahar)

Madagascar Periwinkle or Catharanthus roseus belonging to the family of Dogbanes is a type of evergreen bush. In common language, it is called Sadabahar in India. It is a perennial in its native region of Madagascar and in tropical to semi-tropical regions. The mature plant grows to 1-2.5 meters tall when provided with proper conditions.

Growing Sadabahar

It’s easy to grow the plant from seeds. Directly sow the seeds in a shallow seed hole and space them around 1 foot apart. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and water thoroughly. The sprouts will usually grow in 10-15 days.


Caring Sadabahar Plant


The plant survives best in partial sun and partial shade.



Water your plant when the top layer of the soil is dry. Frequent watering is required during the hottest and driest periods but make sure not to overwater your plant.


It produces the most beautiful flowers in poor soil. Fertile can adversely affect the number of blooms.



Pruning your sadabahar plant regularly promotes new branches, improves the appearance, and enhances flowering.
