Our Vireyas are shipped in their containers with a years supply of our
special fertilizer and complete cultural instructions. We ship whenever the
national weather pattern is favorable (not too hot and not too cold) UPS 2nd
Day Air, 3rd Air, or UPS Ground (six working days to the East coast, plus
weekends). Our main shipping
periods are from February 15th to June 1st., and September 15th to December15th.
size of the plants is dependent on the variety chosen and the time of the
year sent, since they are in nearly continuous growth except during our coldest
months. A rough estimate follows:
|One year middle band||Two year 6 inch band||Three year 2.6 liter||Four year gallon|
|4" to 10" tall||6" to 15 " tall||10" to 24" tall||12" and up tall|
have found that quite a few varieties produce buds during their second year,
and the majority do so in their third year. A few are hold-outs for the fourth
year. The plants on the following pages are listed in alphabetical order by
type, i.e. species, named hybrids and then un-named hybrids. The price schedule
is indicated with a capitalized
"A", "B" or "C".
Examples of Vireya sizes at 8 to 10 years:
|Compact : 1 to 2 feet||Moderate : 2 to 3 feet||Tall : 3 to 5 feet|
many cases, a plant with small flowers will also be smaller growing than one
with large flowers. Vireyas do not have a blooming season but often bloom throughout
the year. None of these plants are cold hardy.
