How We Protect Your Plants For Transit

We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This provides superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.

Upon Receipt Of Your Plants

Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.


 Periwinkle Plants


Hardy Planting Zone- Periwinkle plants are most likely to thrive in USDA growing zones 4 through 8 (all states from Maine through Florida, some parts of Alaska, & none of Hawaii)

 Bloom Season - Periwinkle plants will first bloom in the spring (March or April) and then sometimes again in the fall 

 Bloom Color -During the bloom season, Periwinkle plants will blossom, and display their blue, lavender, purple, or white flowers

 Height at Maturity - Periwinkle plants only grow to be between 3 & 6 inches tall at maturity, with trailing vines that can grow up to 18 inches long 

 Soil Type Preferred- Periwinkle plants are very adaptable and can grow in any kind of soil (acidic, neutral, & alkaline). However, they prefer acidic and slightly moist soils in areas that aren’t prone to serious or extended droughts

 Sun or Shade - Although they are very adaptable and can grow in nearly any conditions, Periwinkle plants grow best in either full sun or partial shade underneath trees.


 Periwinkle plants are subshrubs, or short & woody plants, that are native to south and central Europe.

Known worldwide for their vibrantly-colored flowers, they are grown in places as far north as Alaska, as far south as Texas, and as far east as Portugal and France. Vertically, they grow slower than most plants but laterally, they grow at a faster rate than most plants with each of their vines adding anywhere between 12 & 18 inches per year.

Commonly used as a groundcover, they will overpower any other plants in their area, so it’s best to plant it alone or with bulbs.

However, this same smothering is what makes maintenance in the planting area easy, since they smother weeds as well. Despite being relatively low maintenance, it is important to periodically check the plant for canker, root rot, and botrytis blight, especially in humid and/or wet climates.
