Sandy Leaf Fig Ivy

This evergreen groundcover grows to around 6" tall and can reach 5' in length. This ivy will grow in sun or shade and does not climb. Stays short and tight where it gets sun, but will grow taller in the shade. Works well as a groundcover or plant it in a container to spill over the sides for added interest to a specimen plant. New leaves emerge as bright green and then transition to an eye catching dark emerald green as the plant matures. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 1 gallon pots.

Splendida Agave

The Splendida variety of agave has dark green leaves marked with a bright, yellowish-green stripe down the center of each leaf. The leaf margins are lined with stout spines. When mature, this plant can produce up to a 12' tall flower stalk with spidery, fragrant flowers after which it will die off. However, like most agaves, this variety will form offshoots or “pups” around the base of the parent plant as it ages that can be transplanted to new containers or into the ground. Heat and drought tolerant, it performs best in well-drained soil with full sun exposure and little water needs. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 2 and 7 gallon containers.

Creeping Lobelia

Creeping Lobelia is a rapidly spreading ground cover with a 32-36" spread. With small green leaves and small ivory pink flowers that bloom all summer and fall this would be a nice addition to any landscape. Although it can handle moderate foot traffic, who would want to tread on this cute plant. Lobelia will do well in sun to light shade and in all soil types. Lobelia would make a great addition to a hummingbird or bee garden as they enjoy this little plant. Try this plant in a mixed container of fall color for a great contrast planting for a porch area.
