Perennials, Shrubs, Trees

This week, perennial plants, shrubs and trees that bring Color to your Life in your landscape!

Big 6″ Perennial Pots

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.  Creek Side began planting our larger 6” pot size perennials last summer.  They were all safe and sound in our un-heated greenhouses down by the creek for the winter.  As the days get longer and the temperatures warm up, they get moved up to the cold frames behind House 1 and will come alive and are ready for planting in April.

Great value size 4.5″ Perennial Pot

Perennial planting of the 4.5” pot size happened in January in the Creek Side greenhouses.  All of the pots are planted from starter plants that are grown by greenhouse perennial specialists.  One of the best perennial propagators in the country happens to be located in Colorado so good for us!  These 4.5″ perennial plants will complement the 6″ 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.

Plant Select

Plant Select, the collaboration between Colorado State University and the Denver Botanic Gardens to introduce new garden plants for the Rocky Mountain growing region, will again play a big role in the expanding Creek Side perennial plant offerings.  Expect to find a big selection of the ever popular Delosperma Ice Plants, Agastache Hyssops, Penstemon Beardtongues, Native plants and Pollinator Plants! in addition to some of the new and under-utilized Plant Select varieties as well.

Shrubs & Trees

Creek Side’s selection of landscape shrubs and trees continues to expand for 2024, 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 low water Rabbitbrush, Sages and Manzanita and Fernbush!

Red maples are the most popular tree that Creek Side gets requests for.  Several different varieties of red maples will be available in May and June in a size with good value and ease of handling.

The Creek Side full inventory of shrubs, trees and roses will arrive around the first of May.  This is the perfect time to shop for our best selection.

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!
