Last week we reviewed plans and preparation for Creek Side’s Grown Fresh™ big, beautiful annual flower Hanging Baskets and Container Gardens. Annual flowers are the most colorful flowers that will bloom all summer around your home and in the landscape. This week, more options that bring Color to your Life!
Creek Side’s Grown Fresh™ perennial selection continues to expand, now offering over 350 varieties of perennials that have been selected specifically for success in our Rocky Mountain growing environment. Perennial planting begins in the Creek Side greenhouses next week. Both the 4.5” and larger 6” pot sizes will be planted from starter plants or bare roots. These plants will complement the perennial plants being over-wintered in our cold frames. This way, we can offer you the very best quality and selection of perennial plants anywhere in this area.
The Creek Side perennial selection will Include the 2019 Perennial Plant of the Year from the Perennial Plant Association, Stachys ‘Hummelo’ commonly known as Betony, a picture perfect perennial that deserves wider use. Tidy, dense clumps of rugose green leaves are topped with vivid rose purple flower spikes from early to mid-summer. A great low maintenance plant growing 18”-24” tall that will make an excellent cut flower and attracts pollinators.
Creek Side’s selection of landscape shrubs and trees continues to expand for 2019 as well, with an even bigger selection of native and xeric varieties for gardeners interested in developing a home landscape that will require less water. A landscape that will be a little more in tune with our naturally dry, low water environment. Check out our selection beginning mid-March.
Whether you are decorating your porch and patio with the best and brightest Grown Fresh™ Hanging Baskets and Container Gardens. Whether you are refreshing your landscape or designing a brand new landscape. Or whether you are interested in growing good fresh food in the backyard or on the patio, Creek Side has you covered!
Next week we’ll let you know what is coming up for Creek Side’s Herb and Veggie program. You’ll find a larger selection of organically grown varieties and more!
