Answer: Hi Alex,

From what I have read, I think the plant you are referring to is pink periwinkle or vinca. This is a very hardy little shrub which will grow in full sun or part shade. It is hard to know why the shrub could be wilting. It might be wise to check the moisture level in the soil to make sure it is not too wet or too dry. A recent drop in overnight temperatures could also be the reason. You might like to apply a product such as Yates Uplift Organic Plant Starter & Root Booster. This product is designed to boost stressed plants from the roots up making them stronger and more productive and helping them to recover when stressed.
