Caesalpinia pulcherrima ‘Pride of Barbados’

Referred to as Caesalpinia, Peacock Flower, Mexican Bird of Paradise, and most commonly, Pride of Barbados.

Kalanchoe 'Desert Rose'

Kalanchoe thyrsiflora 'Desert Rose' is a striking succulent also known as the Paddle Plant. It's round growth habit and dramatic foliage appears to give the allure of an underwater coral bed with colors transitioning from blue-green at the base to red on the rounded tips. The vibrant colors intensify in full sun and once the plant has matured will bloom a spike with clusters of yellow tubular flowers in spring. What a great addition of color into a rock garden. Cold hardy in Zones 9-11, and will tolerate temperatures as low as 40 degrees. Grows best in partial to full sun and only requires occasional watering once it is established.

Nature’s Earth Carpets

Well, the groundhog has proclaimed an early spring and we are ready with one of the finest crops of 4" and 4.5" groundcovers we have ever produced! Envision those annoying bare spots that just won't grow grass or your landscape design that just needs 'a little something' to top it off! Groundcovers are like the crowning glory to any container as they spill over the sides giving a whole new dimension to the design.


It's a great occasion when Creekside Nursery can announce the release of a new plant onto our availability! Especially one we know is going to be a HIT! The Westringias are native to New South Wales where they were first seen clinging to those inhospitable cliffs and growing in the sand near the beaches. An innovative grower in Australia hybridized this tough little plant into several new forms, creating a modern day landscape treasure.

Pride Of Houston Holly

Long ago, decorating the house for the holidays was quite different. Creativity and ingenuity were key words! The tree was cut from the field and lovingly placed by the hearth, popcorn was strung as garland, homemade ornaments hung in great abundance and pinecones of all sizes filled every niche. Boughs of fragrant evergreens were strewn across the mantle and a handmade wreath graced the front door. All this green was quite lovely but it needed something...it needed a POP! Being in the south, we don't get quite the same spectacular fall color show as our northern neighbors do, but we do get to enjoy the Holly family's 'turning of the berry"! Pride of Houston Holly is a widely used, multi-purposed, prunable joy in our southern gardens. Tiny little green berries stay hidden all year awaiting Nature's subtle signal to plump up, redden up and be seen!
