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.

Lavender Fernleaf

Lavender Fernleaf sports feathery, fern-like foliage with bright bluish-purple flowers that start blooming early and often throughout the summer and fall seasons. This plant loves full sun, heat and humidity and can grow 16-25” tall in Zones 7-10 with the beautiful bloom stalks reaching as high as 36” tall. The blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies. It is a great landscaping element and also does well in containers with good drainage. Long-lasting blooms display well in beds, containers or as cut flowers for indoor arrangements.

Sunshine Yellow Euryops

Also known as a Bush Daisy, this semi-evergreen shrub-like perennial can be grown in containers, beds and even used as a hedge. Performs best in Zones 7-10, but can be used as an annual in cold climates. Enjoys partial to full sun and once established, can tolerate some drought conditions. Will require more watering during times of extreme heat. This variety of Euryops attracts pollinators, is considered deer resistant and can tolerate some salt air conditions. Blooms nearly year-round in frost-free climates and deadheading encourages continuous flower production. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in a 2 gallon TC pot.

Holly Fern

The Holly Fern is an erect variety with very showy fronds displaying glossy holly-shaped leaves. This shade loving fern is perfect for mass plantings, beautiful as a potted specimen by itself or with other shade-loving plants. Sturdier than most other fern varieties, it stands up to coastal breezes without tattering and can survive well within a salt air environment. The Holly Fern is deer and rabbit resistant, pet-friendly and it has no spiny points like a true holly. Does best in Zones 9-11 and is considered as evergreen in areas with mild winter climates. Can reach a height of 2-3 feet with up to a 2-foot width.
