Burgundy Glow Ajuga

Sometimes called Bugleweed, this is a perennial groundcover with variegated foliage. Low-growing rosettes stay close to the ground, creating a dense carpet that thwarts weeds and controls erosion. It can fill in spaces where other plants struggle to grow - even under Black Walnut trees whose chemical Juglone prevents most plant life from surviving. Short spikes of blue flowers rise above the foliage late in Spring. Deer and rabbit resistant, it thrives in Zones 4-9 in all types of lighting and the flowers attract bees and hummingbirds. Sold here in 18 count flats of 4" pots.

Summerwine Wisteria

Blooming vines are a great way to jazz up a trellis, fence, or arbor while adding color and fragrance to your landscape. This woody twining vine fits that bill perfectly. Its evergreen leaves are a leathery dark green. In summer, reddish-purple, pea-like flowers bloom in large clusters. The blooms are highly fragrant and the plant itself is not as invasive as the more common lavender Wisteria. Deadheading (removing spent flowers) can encourage your vine to keep blooming throughout the warm weather season.

Cross Vine Tangerine Beauty

Crossvine Tangerine Beauty is available here at Creekside Nursery in 1 and 5 gallon staked sizes. This is a vigorous, woody vine that makes a great covering for fences and trellis work. Will attach to other surfaces via tendrils without causing ill effects to the surface. Clusters of tangerine-orange, trumpet-shaped flowers with yellow throats bloom all summer long. Easily grown in Zones 6 – 10, it can grow 10-20 feet tall and will spread as far as you will allow. Although it is a sun loving plant, it is highly adaptable and will grow in just about any condition. The hummingbirds, bees and other pollinators will love you for adorning your yard with one of these lovelies!

Sandy Leaf Fig

If you are looking for a different ground cover Sandy Leaf Fig may be a good option. This evergreen ground cover grows to around 6" tall and can reach 5' in length. Bright green leaves transitions to an eye catching dark emerald green. This ivy will work well in sun or shade and will not climb. Plant in a container to spill over the sides for added interest.
