Star Jasmine

Star Jasmine is a vigorous climbing vine with glossy green foliage and masses of fragrant, star-shaped white flowers in spring, and sporadically in summer. Star Jasmine makes a perfect covering for fences or trellises or can be left to sprawl along the ground, eventually forming a thick mat of foliage.

Gardenia ‘Buttons’

Gardenia ‘Buttons’ is a small evergreen shrub with glossy, dark green leaves and intensely fragrant, semi-double, white flowers, sporting a golden yellow ‘button’ in the center. A sun lover, it is heat tolerant, but does best with morning sun and afternoon shade to help prevent leaf scorch in hotter climates. Mature growth habit is up to 24-30 in. tall and wide. The fragrant blooms are perfect for cut flower arrangements. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new blooming. New here at Creekside this year and offered in a 3 gallon container.

Lantanas

Looking for a heat-loving plant that will brighten your landscape with splashes of color? We carry a wide variety of Lantanas that can fit that bill perfectly! Heat and drought tolerant, they offer not only beautiful flowers, but aromatic foliage. Their wide array of colorful blooms attracts hummingbirds, bees and butterflies, 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. If they begin to look leggy or start to set fruit, just trim them back heavily and new growth will start flushing out quickly. Performs best in Zones 8-12 in full to partial sun.

Hostas

While most Hostas are touted as shade lovers, their sunlight requirements can vary widely. The best rule of thumb for the planting of Hostas is the lighter the foliage, the brighter the sun. Ones with deeper darker foliage retain their color best in moderate shade. The variegated varieties need more sunlight to keep their white and gold stripes. All Hostas need some shade and most will not do well in direct sunlight. In spite of their almost tropical look, Hostas are tough and once established, they can tolerate almost any soil type that has good drainage. They also can withstand short periods of drought.

'Southern Belle' Blueberry

‘Southern Belle’ is a low-chill bush that produces a heavy crop of fruit on bushy stems in a shrub-like form that can reach 4-5’ tall if not annually pruned. The berries, which ripen in late April and early May sport good firmness and a mildly sweet flavor. This variety is considered quite hardy, so this plant will tend to survive some freezing conditions. Blueberries are native to North America and in recent years scientists have discovered a plethora of health advantages associated with adding blueberries to the diet due to their antioxidant properties. Today, blueberries are second only to strawberries as the most commonly consumed berry in America.
