Woodland or whorled stonecrop is a spreading perennial typically found in damp locations along stream banks and stony ledges. It grows a few inches high and spreads with creeping stems. It features small, round, succulent-like leaves and clusters of tiny white, star bursts of flowers above the foliage in spring. The flowers are very attractive to pollinators in the spring, particularly the Buckeye Butterfly and the Variegated Fritillary, of which it is a host species. These are hardy little plants that are rabbit, drought, deer, and air pollution tolerant, making them a lovely, low maintenance addition to any landscape. They are commonly used in rock gardens, green roofs, and naturalized as a ground cover.

Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
