Coming soon - New Coleus!!!

For Spring 2019 we’re introducing some new varieties of Coleus in 2 gallon terra cotta pots. For the first time we’ll be offering the Special Effects, PinkPlosion, and Electric Lime varieties and they are all simply STUNNING! Most Coleus are low maintenance and deer resistant and not always favored for their blooms, but rather for their patterned colored leaves. With their serrated edges and splashes of pinks, burgundy, bright greens and even purple edges, these varieties are no exception. All these Coleus perform well in sun to shade and are tolerant of warm temperatures and humidity making them perfect for Texas gardens, containers and hanging baskets.

Shock Wave Petunia Hanging Baskets

For Spring 2019 we’re offering two colors of the Shock Wave Petunias in a hanging basket format – Deep Purple and Pink Vein. With a fully mounding, yet spreading growth habit, these gorgeous plants are perfect for tight spaces as well as containers of all types. Usually the first line of Petunias to start blooming in early Spring, they continue to flower all the way into late Fall in most areas. Highly weather resistant, they can stand up to wind and rain and can tolerate short periods of extreme heat and cold. All Wave Petunias prefer sunny spots, and the colors of the Shock Wave line actually deepen in full sun.

Awabuki Viburnum

The Awabuki Viburnum has large, leathery, medium to light green, glossy leaves and clusters of extremely fragrant, small white flowers in spring. Later, small red berries form and turn black when mature. Considered an evergreen, it is one of the fastest growing Viburnum varieties. Left to grow naturally, it can become a large shrub, but can easily be trimmed into a small tree form if desired. Best to prune in winter to promote even growth no matter which shape is preferred. Recommended to plant in full sun to light shade in Zones 7-10, this shrub can gain a mature height of 12-15’ with a 10-15’ spread and has high deer tolerance.. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 3 and 7 gallon containers.

Western Sword Fern

The Western Sword Fern is a lush spreading perennial that adds a hint of tropical, woodlands or rustic beauty to any landscape or patio area. The glossy, leather-like fronds unfurl from fiddle shaped sprouts and can reach up 3-4 ft. in length. They perform beautifully in full to part shade, but can tolerate some light sun in Zones 5-9. This fern is one of the few that will thrive in the shade of taller trees so works well as an understory plant for bare areas. The Western Sword Fern is considered mildly drought tolerant once established, is very deer resistant and can provide color when other plants have faded or gone dormant. Cut back old, faded fronds when new growth begins in spring because dead fronds will not shrivel or fall off on their own.

Mary Nell Holly

A superb evergreen with deep green and very shiny foliage. The lustrous leaves with serrated edges maintain their color year-round. This holly has a natural pyramidal form making it handsome enough to be a specimen tree. The Mary Nell Holly is also a great plant to use for privacy or as a wind barrier, since this evergreen grows wide as well as tall. Mature size can reach to 10-12’ tall by 4-6’ wide. Once established this tree is amazingly drought resistant. Can handle full sun to part shade and performs best in Zones 6-9. Numerous bright red berries form in late summer and persist through winter which are attractive to birds and wildlife.
