By periwinkle, I am assuming you mean the evergreen groundcover, Vinca minor, which has bright blue flowers in the spring. This plant is usually available as rooted cuttings planted in little peat pots although it is occasionally offered in larger sizes. These can be planted up until mid fall provided they are mulched and you keep an eye on the soil moisture until the ground freezes.
