Sandy Leaf Fig Ivy

This evergreen groundcover grows to around 6" tall and can reach 5' in length. This ivy will grow in sun or shade and does not climb. Stays short and tight where it gets sun, but will grow taller in the shade. Works well as a groundcover or plant it in a container to spill over the sides for added interest to a specimen plant. New leaves emerge as bright green and then transition to an eye catching dark emerald green as the plant matures. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 1 gallon pots.

Tricolor Asian Jasmine

This variety of Jasmine is a self-climbing or sprawling vine. While it is not known for exceptionally visual flowers, its pink, white and green-blushed foliage is the real attention getter. If it is allowed to climb, it will produce tiny yellow very fragrant flowers. New foliage emerges nearly pure white with pink blush and occasional green speckles. Mature leaves are small and oval with a glossy finish. Performs best in Zones 7B-11 and can handle full sun in cooler areas, but needs partial shade in the hotter zones. In mild winter regions, the white, pink, rose and green foliage will add visual interest year-round and the pinks will deepen to a rosy reddish burgundy.

Fig Ivy

This is a creeping perennial vine that adheres to surfaces by way of aerial roots along the spreading stems. The leaves are heart-shaped and bright green when young, maturing to dark green. It can have many shades of green on the same plant. Climbs quickly and can grow up to 25’ tall with a 3+’ spread per plant. Trim back old growth to promote new growth. Great for covering a brick or concrete wall, an arbor, a trellis or fences. Also can be used on topiary wiring to create shapes and designs. Considered an evergreen in protected areas and thrives in Zones 9-11.

Ajuga Catlin's Giant

This evergreen perennial with its glossy purple-bronze leaves, will form a quick dense mat of foliage. With a center spike of tiny blue-violet flower that can reach 12" tall creates a stunning display from mid to late spring. This Ajuga makes a lovely thick ground cover in shade to part shade areas, where grass has a hard time growing. This plant tends to be rabbit and deer resistant as well as low maintenance and pest free.

Star Jasmine

Also called Confederate Jasmine, this beautiful vine can be trained to cover arbors, trellises or fencelines or trail along as a groundcover. Considered evergreen in Zones 8-11, but can also be grown as a spilling container plant that can be moved to a protected area or brought inside when temperatures drop in cooler areas. The delicate and sweetly fragranced star-shaped white flowers stand out well against the glossy green twining leaves. Available here at Creekside Nursery in staked 1 and 5 gallon pots.
