Salvia 'Wendy's Wish'

Known for its long blooming season and citrus scent, Salvia “Wendy’s Wish” is an upright clump-forming perennial. This cultivar features showy spikes of large magenta pink flowers blooming from late spring to fall. These pink blossoms will rise along their red stems above its dark green foliage that can reach up to 3.5ft long and 2ft wide. This plant is easy and fast-growing that will bring a strong attraction to butterflies and other insect pollinators. Grown here at Creekside Nursery in a 3 gallon containter.

Society Garlic

Society garlic is an attractive ornamental plant from South Africa whose leaves have a garlicky scent. Southern gardeners can grow it year-round outdoors; it tolerates summer heat well and blooms for months. The plants do best in full sun and in light, sandy soil. Plants grown in part shade may send up a few flowers, but the bloom period will be shorter. Full sun is a must for good flowers! A leafless stalk 1 or 2 feet tall holds seven to 20 flowers above the foliage in an umbel. Society garlic is excellent as an ornamental, and has an alter ego in the kitchen! The leaves can be chopped like those of garlic chives and added to stir-fries, salads, soups, egg dishes, or wherever you’d like for a hint of garlic!
