Easter Barrel Cactus

Easter Barrel Cactus is a popular cacti that we offer in both quarts (12 per flat) and in our 2 gallon terra cotta pots. Suitable for indoor use or as a container plant and in rock gardens. Both heat and drought tolerant, they require sandy, well-drained soil for best results. This variety of cactus blooms with a beautiful display of huge, showy, light lavender-pink flowers. These plants are native to arid desert regions and usually have only rainfall to supply their moisture needs, so be sure not to overwater.

Setcreasea - Purple Heart

We carry two varieties of Setcreasea here at Creekside Nursery. Our common Purple Heart comes in a 1 gallon size and shows off its lush, dark purple foliage with dainty pink flowers that bloom in spring thru summer. The Pink Stripe variety is offered in an 18 per flat 4” pot. Both varieties will die back in cold weather, but flush back when the ground warms again. Exposure to the brightest lighting brings out the truest colors. Heat tolerant and deer resistant, they both make great plants as groundcovers, in containers and spilling out of hanging baskets.

Roses Roses Roses

As the sun and warmer weather has finally decide to hang around, our roses are starting to show their true colors. With Nearly Wild, Ice Cap, Julia Child, Martha Gonzales and patented varieties starting to flush and bloom. Ask your salesperson what is starting to shine.

Lavender Fernleaf

Lavender Fernleaf sports feathery, fern-like foliage with bright bluish-purple flowers that start blooming early and often throughout the summer and fall seasons. This plant loves full sun, heat and humidity and can grow 16-25” tall in Zones 7-10 with the beautiful bloom stalks reaching as high as 36” tall. The blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies. It is a great landscaping element and also does well in containers with good drainage. Long-lasting blooms display well in beds, containers or as cut flowers for indoor arrangements.

Hibiscus!

The tropical area here at Creekside Nursery is bursting with the dazzling display of Hibiscus in bloom! Dark glossy leaves provide the perfect background for the showiness of wide trumpet-shaped pinks, reds, yellows and peach petals, some even offering double sets in the blooms. Hibiscus prefer to be kept moist but not soaking wet, so they need well-drained soil. They thrive in full sun, but because of their cold sensitivity, should be grown in moveable containers or in a protected area anywhere temperatures can dip into the thirties or below.
