Plant Sale

I stopped by Lowe's today to look at the paint and just happened to see the 75% off trees, shrubs and perennials sign in front of the garden center. It was cold and drizzly but I braved the weather to see what they had remaining. I didn't think there would be too much left and I figured it wouldn't be healthy, but I was pleasantly surprised. They still had a pretty good selection of perennials and they actually looked like they hadn't been in stock very long. The sale even included mums! I have been on a really tight budget, and have bought very few plants this year, but I just couldn't pass up these beauties.

I only spent $16.00 and here is what I purchased: Five 'Palace Purple' Coral Bells, (Heuchera), one 'Melting Fire' Heuchera, one 'Summer Sun Sundrops', Heliopsis, yellow twig dogwood, two mums, one spiderwort, and one sedum. I was so excited about the great deals! One shrub and eleven perennials for only $16.00!

We are supposed to have a freeze tonight, but it should get a little warmer next week. Hopefully I can get these in the ground and move a few other things around before winter sets in.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Get out the shovel, Robin, good weather is heading your way with highs predicted in the 70's !

You certainly made out like a bandit. Love the color of the Spiderwort, but a Word of caution just in case you don't know : It travels.

Enjoy planting your new treasures.

Sounds like great deals!

I fell for a sale also. High Country Gardens has their alliums on sale -- buy one bag, get one free -- so, I have a big load of allium bulbs heading my way. I also ordered more seeds. Addicted. No Excuse.
