hey kids! Means is having a sale!


And when they have a sale, it’s a doozy.


Last year, I was skeptical…but then I rationalized that even if they only lasted a season, full sized specimens at what I would normally pay for annuals were still a bargain. Here it is: one year later and every one of those plants is thriving.


There hasn’t been a lot of exotic stuff this year, but if you’re looking to plant a hedge, or a sweep of grasses, you can do so without breaking the bank.

Rainbow Leucanthoe

For instance, we keep going back for more of this Rainbow Leucanthoe to line a part of the drive.


At $2.99 each you can hardly go wrong.


I was charged with going back for three more and look what happened. I asked about the price of that variegated dogwood and was told it was $49.99…but then he said “you want it? you can have it for $25.” Deal!


While I’m not big on roses, I did like the color of this one, so I’ll tuck it away somewhere and have the stuff of fragrant bouquets.

agaves & yuccas

Come for the sale, but look around the rest of the place while you’re at it. You might be surprised at what you find.

  1. Loree~Not ON SALE, but bargains nonetheless.


    Grace~Jumping up & down about covers it. I had been looking for lemongrass and that’s it in front.

    Tamara~You are so welcome.

    Peter~Even if the sale is over, it’s always worth looking.

    Jane~Me too…I have a hard time driving by without stopping.

  2. I should have asked about those dogwoods! But when I went last I couldn’t have fit one in the car. Have to go back with the truck.

  3. Evan~I had a lot of help getting it into the car. They are very accommodating there. The inventory changes quickly, so you really have to act fast.
