Color Guard Yucca

The green and yellow foliage of Color Guard Yucca is stiff and produces snowy white flowers on a tall spike in late spring to early summer that are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in a 5 gallon container, it is ideal as an accent or container specimen, or planted in mass. It is tolerant of wind, heat, humidity, and drought and is considered as deer and rabbit resistant. As long as it is well-draining, Yucca does not care what type of soil you plant it in, and while they do prefer full sun, they can be tolerant of some light shade. Sharp-tipped leaves mean you should consider planting yuccas away from sidewalks, paths, mailboxes and driveways. Plants can quickly reach 3 to 4 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide, so plan to give yourself plenty of space to move around your Yuccas.


Growing Cyclamen in your garden can be easy under the right conditions! Suited for shade or light shade in well drained soil. Mix with hardy perennials for a great fall/winter garden. Only reaching a height of 8", plant near a shaded outdoor living area so they can be easily seen and enjoyed. Cyclamen also make a great container planting on decks and patios, with their bright colored flowers they will brighten up in garden or patio!

Tricolor Asian Jasmine

This variety of Jasmine is a self-climbing or sprawling vine. While it is not known for exceptionally visual flowers, its pink, white and green-blushed foliage is the real attention getter. If it is allowed to climb, it will produce tiny yellow very fragrant flowers. New foliage emerges nearly pure white with pink blush and occasional green speckles. Mature leaves are small and oval with a glossy finish. Performs best in Zones 7B-11 and can handle full sun in cooler areas, but needs partial shade in the hotter zones. In mild winter regions, the white, pink, rose and green foliage will add visual interest year-round and the pinks will deepen to a rosy reddish burgundy.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a succulent plant species that is stemless with thick, greenish, fleshy leaves that fan out from its central stem. This plant is commonly found in many cosmetics, beverages, and topical medications. It is known best to treat superficial burns and sunburns due to its soothing cooling properties. It can be grown indoors as a house plant or outdoors as a perennial. If grown outdoors, it must be dry with full sun to very bright indirect light; this plant needs bright light in order to flower. Grown here at Creekside Nursery in a 12 quart flat and two gallon container!
