Vinca alba perennial is a rarity to find, at least from my searches. These plants were shipped quickly, well packaged, and healthy mature plants, not at all pot bound. The only reason I knocked one star off the available 5 is that though the website lists them as tolerant to Zone 4, the Vinca alba labels them Zone 6. My suggestion to anyone looking for a "rare" specimen would be to call ahead to verify the plant is fit for their zone. Gorgeous plants!

This arrived approximately three weeks ago. I've planted it and it's doing well. This variety of periwinkle (Vinca) is difficult to find, but it's a favorite of mine.
the plants were so healthy
I have never ordered plants on line before, so I was very hesitant how it would work out. They kept me informed on the entire delivery process. The plants arrived exactly when they said they would. They were wrapped well and looked great. I can't wait until they bloom:)
