Vinca vine

Several years ago, we bought some of this vine (Vinca major) as a decorative touch for the flower boxes at the front steps.  Being a vine, it climbed down the side of the steps and rooted itself into the dirt next to them.  I thought for sure the winter would kill it; snow and ice accumulate exactly in that spot.  Well, the next spring, the vine came back: not in the flower pot, but down below!  This winter we had very little snow, and thus very little insulation on the ground.  I feared the worst for this vine, but to my happy surprise, it not only survived: it flowered!  I had no idea this thing could flower, and here it is, a beautiful purple.

As usual, kudos to my better half who identified it straight away.  I, as usual, hadn't a clue what it's called.
