Blue Sentry Yucca

This is an evergreen Yucca with a rosette of unusual blue-green leaves and tall spikes of creamy white, bell-shaped summer flowers. Performs best in full sun and is hardy in Zones 5a – 9b. Requires well drained soil and once established, can survive some drought conditions. Blue Sentry Yucca stands out in a xeriscape type setting or can be planted in large containers. Grows slowly with a mature size of 2-3’H X 2-3’S. While this plant does not have a pronounced spine tip, it is best not to plant in near close pathways or where children or pets may play. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 5 and 15 gallon containers.

Black Ripple Colocasia

Commonly referred to as a kind of Elephant Ear, this particular beauty stands out on its own with its iridescent puckered leaves of purplish black. Sitting atop multiple dark burgundy red stems, the leaves unfurl from brownish backs to reveal their inner glossy foliage. Considered a dwarf variety, they can grow 3-4’ H x 3-4’ W and they prefer medium wet, but not soggy soil. However, they have been known to do well in pond edges and around water features.

Sandankwa Viburnum

This popular, dense evergreen shrub with leathery dark green leaves is fast growing and can grow up to 6-10 ft tall and 3-6 ft wide. Makes a great planting on 3 or 4 ft centers for a woodland hedge effect, and can be grouped with contrasting textures and perennials to add visual interest! Sandankwa Viburnum can also be used as a screen to hide those pesky unwanted views! In early spring, clusters of light pink tubular flowers will appear followed by red berries that darken to black. Available here at Creekside Nursery in a 3 and 7 gallon container.

Silver Surfer Agave

Years ago, the only place we saw these odd and exotic plants was traveling through the great southwest or in Mexico on that family vacation! The Silver Surfer Agave in particular is a large, clumping Agave with silvery-blue leaves edged with spines which makes a great color addition to the landscape! Like most Agave, the Silver Surfer is heat and drought tolerant and grows well in any well-drained soil. Currently available here at Creekside Nursery in a 15g pot!

Tangerine Beauty Crossvine

Tangerine Beauty Crossvine is available here at Creekside Nursery in 1 and 5 gallon staked sizes. This is a vigorous, woody vine that makes a great covering for fences and trellis work. Will attach to other surfaces via tendrils without causing ill effects to the surface. Clusters of tangerine-orange, trumpet-shaped flowers with yellow throats bloom all summer long. Easily grown in Zones 6 – 10, it can grow 10-20 feet tall and will spread as far as you will allow. Although it is a sun loving plant, it is highly adaptable and will grow in just about any condition. The hummingbirds, bees and other pollinators will love you for adorning your yard with one of these lovelies!
