Lavender Fernleaf

Lavender Fernleaf sports feathery, fern-like foliage with bright bluish-purple flowers that start blooming early and often throughout the summer and fall seasons. This plant loves full sun, heat and humidity and can grow 16-25” tall in Zones 7-10 with the beautiful bloom stalks reaching as high as 36” tall. The blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies. It is a great landscaping element and also does well in containers with good drainage. Long-lasting blooms display well in beds, containers or as cut flowers for indoor arrangements.


The tropical area here at Creekside Nursery is bursting with the dazzling display of Hibiscus in bloom! Dark glossy leaves provide the perfect background for the showiness of wide trumpet-shaped pinks, reds, yellows and peach petals, some even offering double sets in the blooms. Hibiscus prefer to be kept moist but not soaking wet, so they need well-drained soil. They thrive in full sun, but because of their cold sensitivity, should be grown in moveable containers or in a protected area anywhere temperatures can dip into the thirties or below.

Firepower Nandina

Firepower produces a very neat mound of colorful foliage with the potential of a 3’ height with up to a 3’ spread. Absolutely one of the best colored of our Nandina offerings, the brilliant fall and winter colors make this a perfect selection for borders, mass plantings and containers. This variety of Nandina isn’t known for its flowers or fruit, but its seasonal wide array of lime green to fiery red leaves is its crowning glory. After being established, Firepower can thrive on neglect in full sun to part shade in Zones 6b-10. They can withstand some drought conditions, but do best with consistent watering in rich soil. Shear during summer to keep a tidy appearance if preferred.

‘Dwarf Pringles’ Japanese Yew

Lower growing form of the Standard Japanese Yew, this shrub has dense, small, dark green, needle-like foliage, but without the sharp points. This plant grows well in Zones 8-11 in partial shade to full sun. For zones with colder temperature ranges, it can be grown in containers for moving indoors during winter. Also effective for mass planting on embankments, hillsides and slopes where its root system can assist with erosion control. Left natural, it can reach 3 to 5 ft. tall with a spread of up to 6 ft. wide. However, it responds well to pruning and shaping for size control. This is also a great plant to use in coastal areas because it tolerates mild salt spray. Considered as deer resistant and is not bothered by many insects.
