New Plants from North Creek

Here you'll find recent introductions to our catalog!

Caryopteris × clandonensis Blue Empire™ 'Elst01'

Bluebeard Spirea

According to Plantipp, the motto of this stunning, new Caryopteris is big, blue & beautiful! We found that to be true in our own trial gardens here at North Creek. Its powdery grey-green foliage is the perfect skirting to present the long wands of stacked deep blue flowers. The flowers are bigger than other Caryopteris that we have trialed with long wands lasting weeks on end. It is a wonderful addition to the landscape or container garden + excellent for cut flowers. Superior low growing habit.

Coreopsis tripteris 'Gold Standard'

Tall Tickseed

This accession of C. tripteris was collected by Mt. Cuba Center in the wild and shows better garden performance than the straight species. This plant is approximately 1’ shorter and blooms for an additional six weeks. The flowers were also born on shorter, secondary growth. This characteristic distributed the floral display throughout the entire plant rather than solely at the top.

The cultivar name of 'Gold Standard' was assigned at the completion of the trial due to this selections superior performance compared to the straight species.  Mt. Cuba Center Coreopsis Trial 2015
