Oxalis 'Francis'

Bright purple, triangular-shaped leaves and pale pinkish white blossoms make this Oxalis a stand out for a container garden, en masse for a stunning focal point or an eye-catching border in a shade garden. In warmer zones (7-10), it is often grown as an attractive ground cover. In cooler zones, containers will need to be brought inside and placed in bright, but indirect sunlight. Or left in the ground, they will die back to the bulbs until favorable conditions return, then sprout back. Can attain a mature height and spread of up to 1 foot. Propagate these by division of their rhizomes or just let them spread naturally.

'Dwarf Pringles' Japanese Yew

Lower growing form of the Standard Japanese Yew, this shrub has dense, small, dark green, needle-like foliage, but without the sharp points. This plant grows well in Zones 8-11 in partial shade to full sun. For zones with colder temperature ranges, it can be grown in containers for moving indoors during winter. Also effective for mass planting on embankments, hillsides and slopes where its root system can assist with erosion control. Left natural, it can reach 3 to 5 ft. tall with a spread of up to 6 ft. wide. However, it responds well to pruning and shaping for size control. This is also a great plant to use in coastal areas because it tolerates mild salt spray. Considered as deer resistant and is not bothered by many insects.

Arborvitae 'Blue Cone'

Arborvitae 'Blue Cone' sports brilliant bright green foliage in vertical sprays forming a dense, upright, oval egg-shaped plant. An especially hardy wind tolerant form and foliage resistant to winter burn! The blue cones contrast nicely with the green foliage. Perfect as hedges or privacy screen in tight areas. Use in pairs to flank an entry or special feature in the landscape. A moderate growing evergreen adaptable to most all soil conditions! Grown Here at Creekside Nursery in a 3g pot!

Compact Mexican Firebush

Compact Mexican Firebush is a dwarf version of an American tropical from the coffee family that produces masses of tubular-shaped red-orange flowers from summer to fall. Burgundy tinged leaves grow on the red stems most of the year. The flowers attract bees and butterflies on this heat loving plant! Can be added to the annual garden, planted in mixed containers or as a filler in the landscape.

Bamboo Muhly Grass

This grass has fern-like leaves and a lacy texture giving it a bamboo look. Growth habit is upward to slightly arching. Non-invasive; clump form. Will tolerate some drought, but it will look its best in well-drained soil. Bamboo muhly does not spread aggressively like its namesake. Rather it grows slowly outward from a central clump. Its only downside for use in central Texas is that sustained deep freezes can injure it, turning it the color of straw and possibly even killing it. Despite that risk, it’s considered hardy to around ten degrees.
