Cora® Cascade Violet Vinca (Catharanthus roseus) blooms from spring to the first hard frost. The large flower is a beautiful violet, as the name suggests. The petals overlap each other on its wide, flat, flowers. The plant is heat-loving and drought tolerant once it is established. It would also make a nice cut flower to bring in during the hot summer when everything else is brown.

The Vinca Cora Cascade Violet is resistant to aerial Phytophthora. However, pay attention to how deep you plant it because the stem doesn’t do well when it is covered in soil. Vinca Cora Cascade Violet looks good in hanging baskets, mixed containers, and in the landscape. In the baskets or containers, it is a spiller. Butterflies love the flowers on this plant.

Cora® Cascade Violet Vinca Care

Place some compost or a slow-release fertilizer down when you plant the Vinca Cora Cascade Violet, and it will grow and bloom all season. Deadheading the spent flowers will keep the plant tidy. This plant needs an average amount of water until it is established. It is drought and heat tolerant, but you will get better flowers if you water it throughout the season. It will grow in part shade but loves the full sun.

A herbaceous perennial, Vinca Cora Cascade Violet likes it hot and humid. That makes it great growing along the Gulf Coast, with the hot humid summers. Vinca Cora Cascade Violet is sensitive to frost so won’t make it through the winter in most areas of the United States.

Cora® Cascade Violet Vinca Spacing

Vinca Cora Cascade Violet is a ground cover, so it is short. The 6-8-inch-tall plant spreads 22-25 inches. If planting in a mixed container, plant this flower in the front so that it can spill over the edge and not take up so much room in the container. If used as a ground cover, plant Vinca Cora Cascade Violet 22-25 inches apart so it can spread out.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
