Whirling Butterfly Gaura

Native to the prairies, roadsides, and pond edges of the Deep South, this cultivar of Gaura is a compact, vase shaped perennial with slender arching red stems. During late summer and through the fall it grows pink buds that bloom snowy white flowers. Whirling butterfly has an airy and lovely growth habit. The flowers open only a few at a time and dance in the wind like butterflies. This plant is great as a border plant that will show color late in the year.

Red Powder Puff Calliandra

Native to Bolivia, Red Powder Puff is an evergreen shrub or small tree. When the bipinnately compound leaves open, they are a copper-pink but mature to a dark green. Raspberry-like flower buds open to round red powder puff flowers, consisting of masses of scarlet stamens. It blooms primarily in the fall and winter, however it has been known to bloom sporadically throughout the year. They are great for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, and are a great tropical plant to add color and year round foliage to any landscape. Height 3-6 Feet Width 2-3 Feet Soil Moist Sun Full

Golden Moneywort Lysimachia

Lysimachia Moneywort or “creeping Jenny”, is a low growing, creeping groundcover that forms a leafy carpet no more than four inches tall. It is a fast spreader as it roots where the leaf nodes touch the ground. It thrives in damp soils and will often choke out weeds and other groundcovers. This cultivar features rounded slightly ruffled light green leaves. In early summer it will bloom bright yellow, cup-shaped flowers. Lysimachia Golden Moneywort is great for a low maintenance groundcover along streams or ponds and is beautiful when they spill over stone walls or fences.

Titanota Agave

Native to the limestone cliffs of Oaxaca, Mexico, Titanota Agave is a medium sized robust looking agave. It has ghostly white colored leaves arranged in a wide, open crown rosette of few leaves. The leaves can reach up to 50 cm long and 12 cm wide. Titanota is quite cold hardy especially in dry climates. However, it would be best to avoid exposure to extreme freezing temperatures for an extended amount of time. Titanota is very heat tolerant as well. These striking plants are wonderful when used to provide year round foliage color, as a patio plant. It is also a great plant for rock gardens. Here at Creekside, we currently have Titanota Agave available for sale in a 5 gallon size!
