Hey Mo!

Cutting up the rosy periwinkle and moistening it will help to make the weed/ plant easier to break down. Adding shredded cardboard may also help speed the process. I would suggest adding a little to your vermicompost bin right off the bat, and seeing how the worms tolerate it. If they eat it, add some more a little at a time. As long as the Vinca is consumed, I would not be too concerned about seeds persisting in the castings.

Happy Composting!
