We dig plants when your order is received, and ship immediately via US Priority Mail. You will receive a tracking number via email when plants are shipped. All plants are packed to be safe in their packages for up to 3 days after receipt.
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.
Squaw Vine/Partridgeberry Plants
Hardy Planting Zone- Hardy planting zones are 3-9, can be grown almost anywhere in the US (excluding Alaska & Hawaii because of extreme temperature)
Bloom Season - Their flowers bloom in the spring and summer months (May thru July) while the berries emerge and ripen in the late summer & early fall months(July thru October)
Bloom Color - Squaw Vine plants bloom with white flowers that sometimes have a pink center. After producing flowers, edible red berries will grow from the plant as well.
Height at Maturity: Mature height is anywhere from 2 to 4 feet, though they rarely pass 3 feet. Width at maturity is usually anywhere from 12 to 16 inches (1foot to 1ft 4in)
Soil Type Preferred- Squaw vine or partridgeberry plants prefer soil closer to neutral but can also be grown in acidic soil.
Sun or Shade - The Squaw Vine Plant grows best in moist soil and areas with little to no sunshine. They grow best when planted in areas with morning sun and afternoon shade.
The Partridgeberry/Squaw Vine plant is an evergreen perennial, berry-producing shrub that grows up to 6 inches each year.
In the spring and summer, the bush blooms with twin white tubular flowers that sometimes have pink centers. In the summer and early fall months (July through October), they produce edible yet tasteless red berries. It is a very hardy plant that can be grown as far north as Maine and as far south as Florida.
Relatively self-sufficient, it prefers partially or fully shaded areas with neutral-acidic soils.
After about three months after planting, they will take hold and sprawl across rocks/rocky surfaces, forming a carpet-like groundcover. More times than not, the plant is found growing on the east coast of the United States, near streams and rivers. However, they have been observed growing in some southwestern states, including Texas.
