Hanging Basket Poinsettias

This holiday season, Creekside has a beautiful plant to help bring you some cheer, the poinsettia! Known as the Christmas plant, the poinsettia is native to Mexico and Central America. It was first introduced to the United States back in the early 1800s by Joel Robert Poinsett, who was the United States Ambassador to Mexico. The common name we are all familiar with is named after him.

Chile Pequin Pepper

The Chile Pequin Pepper is an attractive annual hot pepper. At maturity, it can get to be between two and four feet tall. It has white flowers and little red peppers that are extremely hot. The Chile Pequin is about ten times hotter than a jalapeno pepper, hitting approximately 40,000 to 60,000 units on the scoville scale! The Chile Pequin has low water requirements and is very heat tolerant. It is easy to grow and is an excellent xeriscaping plant.

Garden Mums

Creekside Nursery has 12 varieties of Chrysanthemums, also known as Mums, which are all currently green and starting to crack color. This sun loving plant needs regular watering. Garden Mums are most commonly grown in containers, but they can grow in a wide range of soils. The flower heads can vary, but most have a similar appearance to a pompom or a daisy. Pair Mums with Sedums, Asters, or Miscanthus.
