Fire Glow Kniphofia

Native to South Africa and commonly known as Red Hot Poker plants, this clumping perennial grown from rhizomes has narrow foliage and summertime blooms on tall stems. The flowers can last for weeks and give a dash of exotic flare for cut flower arrangements. Cutting the flower stalks can often encourage the production of more blossoms. Hummingbirds love the flowers and the plants are considered drought tolerant and rabbit resistant. They prefer sun to partial shade, have a mature size of 18-24” height and spread. Grows best in Zones 5-10.

White African Iris

Also known as Butterfly Iris, this variety is simple to maintain and fits into virtually any garden. Tall evergreen leaves are topped with an array of a white, yellow and purple bloom from spring through summer. The blooms only last a day, but new ones replace them throughout the season. White African Iris can tolerate heat, drought and neglect once established. They thrive in fertile, well-drained soils, and are perfect for planting beside water features. Sold in both one and three-gallon sizes here at Creekside Nursery, plant them in sun to partial shade in Zones 8-11. It is advisable to divide large clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring and to remove old bloom stalks to encourage new growth.

Daylilies

Daylilies are some of the most carefree of all flowering perennials. They can thrive in almost any type of soil, and are rarely troubled by insects or disease. The plants grow quickly, are long lived and historically have been shared from the gardens of family and friends across the country. Their dense root system reduces soil erosion and can choke out most weeds. Even when they’re not in bloom, the lush foliage makes a good backdrop for other flowers. We carry a variety of different colors and heights of Daylilies here at the Nursery. Ask your Creekside Nursery sales representative about the best ones for your planting needs!

Delosperma

Also commonly called Ice Plant, this African native is proven to be heat and drought tolerant while providing low-growing groundcover with succulent needle-like foliage and bright pinkish-purple flowers. The foliage is covered with transparent flakes that somewhat resemble tiny pieces of ice, hence the common name. Can handle full sun and flourishes best in Zones 5-9. Delosperma are highly attractive to bees and provide an exceptional nectar source for pollinators while bringing spots of brilliant color to open areas where other plants may not thrive.

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.
