Gold Star Esperanza

Chosen as a Texas SuperStar, the Gold Star variety of Esperanza is a great choice for non-stop golden colored blooms. This is a fast-growing semi-evergreen shrub that produces large clusters of golden-yellow, bell-shaped flowers from late spring well into fall. Great as a showy border and does well as a large container plant, because it can be pruned to maintain a more compact habit. Esperanza is very heat tolerant and loves full sun. Performs best in Zones 9-11 and is attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Remove dead flower clusters and seedpods as they form to keep flowers producing.

White Variegated Dianella

Also known as Flax Lily, this is an evergreen perennial with grass-like foliage that is streaked green and white. Tall spires of lavender-blue flowers are followed by blue berries. Drought tolerant, and prefers partial shade, but can handle a few daily hours of full sun, especially in the coastal areas. Performs best in rich, loamy soil and thrives in Zones 8-10. Good for borders, beautiful planted en masse and does great in containers, too. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 1 and 3 gallon containers.

Lantanas

Lantanas are one of our best sellers here at Creekside Nursery. We offer a variety of color and form to suit any landscaping need. Heat and drought tolerant, they offer not only beautiful flowers, but aromatic foliage. Their color-sweeping spectrum attracts butterflies, bees and hummingbirds, while having the opposite effect on deer and rabbits. These tough and durable plants require little watering once established and will bloom from Spring through Fall, after which some varieties set on a small black fruit that is attractive to some birds, but should be avoided by humans, pets and livestock. Sold in one-gallon containers, ask your Creekside Nursery representative today about our selection of Lantanas!

Serena Purple Angelonia

High heat and humidity tolerant and requiring little maintenance, the Serena Purple Angelonia is a great plant for sunny borders or containers located where they will receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day. Also known as Summer Snapdragons because of their similarly shaped blooms on spikes rising above the foliage, they do not have the trademark hinge that would allow them to ‘snap’ when touched. Serena Purple can grow up to 20" tall by 14" wide and attracts butterflies and bees. Remove dead and dying flower stalks to encourage more blooms. Available here at Creekside Nursery in a 2 gallon terra cotta container.
