This is another white-variegated selection of Vinca minor. To be totally honest, if I had a choice I would pick Vinca minor 'Ralph Shugert', but there are also cases where the lighter flowers of 'Sterling Silver' would be more desirable.

Don't get me wrong -- this is still a great plant! It's especially useful for darker areas where you want to brighten things up -- the lavender flowers do a great job.

Like most Vinca vines it will produce fewer blooms in deep shade, so if you can give it partial shade it will be happiest. It will fill a space faster if grown in organic, moist, well-drained soil, but it will also grow quite well in heavy clay as long as it gets adequate moisture.
