    Also "Vinca" or "Vincha"?
    Anyway it's not a russian word.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Да, это не русское слово.

    Vinca - this is the name of a flower.

    In Russian Всегдажив.
    Please, can You correct, if I have made mistakes.

    Vinca - это латинское наименование растения (барвинок, всегдажив)

    У бессмертника другое наименование.
