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.

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!
