I have a TON of Variegated Vinca Major.

This is a perennial ground cover plant.

It will grow upwards, and once it reaches a certain height it will fall to the ground and start vining. It gets periwinkle flowers, and the leaves are green and white like Hostas.

I will charge $2 a sprig for Non WWKC members, and $1 a sprig for WWKC members, with a 5 sprig minimum. I will throw in extras. :yes:

Shipping will be flat rate priority through USPS- small is $5, and Medium is $10.70 (The size of the box is your choice)

The plant roots will be wrapped in damp newspaper and polymer water crystals to ensure they don't dry out.


If you have any questions feel free to ask, and if you would like to make an order, please PM me.

I will provide pics of my actual plants tomorrow when it's light out. Until then, here's a general pic of them. :D:

Please provide which state you live in, as I will NOT sell to states where it is prohibited! :no:

Hi:

Please don't send any out west. It's a widely acknowledged invasive species.

It is invasive in my yard (MD) It began with hanging plants on my front porch and now has overtaken a 20x15 flower bed that surrounds the porch area

I plant invasives on the north side of my house on purpose. Nothing else will grow there. If it creeps outside of the bed, I just spray with some weed B gone when I spray the dandelions.

We can buy it at the nursery, so it must not be illegal YET.

I used the vinca originally to cover a large flower bed that was made out of dirt from when we dug the pond. I didn't want to spray any weed killer because of it staying in the soil.. so I planted it to smudge out all the grass that pops up, and it also smudged out my ivy THANK GOODNESS!!

I think its beautiful, and I love it. If I could have it in several other places I would.

I need 20, how big are the sprigs? Do I need a medium box?

I have various different size sprigs.

From 4" to super long strands. For 20, you may need a medium box. I might be able to find another way to ship them so shipping isn't like $10.

Shoot me a PM and we can work something out. :)

I wonder if all varieties are thought of as invasive or just some. I have the cultivar Illumination. It spreads, but very slowly. Maybe a foot and a half in five years? I wouldn't consider that invasive. Its roots are shallow as well so it is easy to chop back and keep contained.
