Vareigated Ginger

Variegated Ginger, also known as "Shell Ginger" brings a pop of tropical interest to any shade garden. Displaying green and yellow striped leaves and a wide-spreading habit, these are moderately salt-tolerant plants that do best in filtered sun to part shade. The name Shell Ginger comes from the fragrant flowers that appear (infrequently) in warm weather, looking like strands of tiny white seashells. Performs best in Zones 8-10 with watering as needed to keep the soil moist. Has a mature growth habit of 4-6’ tall and 6-8’ wide. Works well beside pools and water features. Also makes a great container plant where growth can be more contained.

Oleanders

Oleanders are a hardy and popular variety of flowering shrub. They make wonderful hedge or screening plants. Once established, Oleanders are drought tolerant, heat, wind and disease resistant and very durable. The Hardy Red, Pink and Yellow varieties offer up plenty of beautiful flowers that hold their color for an extended time through the summer. Petite is a dwarf version of the Hardy variety of Oleanders. Noted for their durable heat, drought and salt tolerance, these plants are very useful in coastal locations and Xeric plantings. Their flowers bloom from spring through summer. The petite line is offered here at Creekside Nursery in Pink and Salmon.
