TNLA Expo update

It was great getting to see all of our current customers and meet hopefully some new ones at TNLA this year. What great show with all the new plants and products coming onto the market. With the "Saddle Up" theme, how could we not shine in Houston! It was great seeing all the booths that participated in the theme this year, congratulations to the booth winners. We really enjoyed getting to watch all the kids and adults ride the bull in our booth. What a great time not only for the kids riding the bull, but for all of us who were able to watch! 

Rio Grande Purslane

Rio Grande Purslane is a low-growing, vigorous annual that blooms heavily in the heat of summer. We carry them in hanging baskets in a variety of colors: magenta, orange, and yellow. Compared to other varieties, the Rio Grande variety is known for it's tropical look. It is a prostrate trailing annual that typically grows to 4-6" tall with a spread to 10-12" wide. By nature, Purslane is a succulent, therefore making it drought resistant and a fan of well-drained soil. Plant in a sunny spot and it will bloom all year long.

Blue Bayou Pampas Grass

As summer comes to an end (and we are promised some relief from the heat) we will start to see blooms on ornamental grasses. Here at Creekside, Blue Bayou Pampas Grass is already showing off its cream-colored plumes. Blue Bayou is a dwarf Pampas Grass, growing to be about 5’ tall. It is a well-behaved, shorter alternative to traditional Pampas Grass. The name “Blue Bayou” comes from its unique, blue-tinted foliage. It is drought-tolerant, and has exceptional salt tolerance.
