Shock Wave Petunia Hanging Baskets

For Spring 2019 we’re offering two colors of the Shock Wave Petunias in a hanging basket format – Deep Purple and Pink Vein. With a fully mounding, yet spreading growth habit, these gorgeous plants are perfect for tight spaces as well as containers of all types. Usually the first line of Petunias to start blooming in early Spring, they continue to flower all the way into late Fall in most areas. Highly weather resistant, they can stand up to wind and rain and can tolerate short periods of extreme heat and cold. All Wave Petunias prefer sunny spots, and the colors of the Shock Wave line actually deepen in full sun.

Awabuki Viburnum

The Awabuki Viburnum has large, leathery, medium to light green, glossy leaves and clusters of extremely fragrant, small white flowers in spring. Later, small red berries form and turn black when mature. Considered an evergreen, it is one of the fastest growing Viburnum varieties. Left to grow naturally, it can become a large shrub, but can easily be trimmed into a small tree form if desired. Best to prune in winter to promote even growth no matter which shape is preferred. Recommended to plant in full sun to light shade in Zones 7-10, this shrub can gain a mature height of 12-15’ with a 10-15’ spread and has high deer tolerance.. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 3 and 7 gallon containers.

Western Sword Fern

The Western Sword Fern is a lush spreading perennial that adds a hint of tropical, woodlands or rustic beauty to any landscape or patio area. The glossy, leather-like fronds unfurl from fiddle shaped sprouts and can reach up 3-4 ft. in length. They perform beautifully in full to part shade, but can tolerate some light sun in Zones 5-9. This fern is one of the few that will thrive in the shade of taller trees so works well as an understory plant for bare areas. The Western Sword Fern is considered mildly drought tolerant once established, is very deer resistant and can provide color when other plants have faded or gone dormant. Cut back old, faded fronds when new growth begins in spring because dead fronds will not shrivel or fall off on their own.
