I was just telling all of you about my lack of restraint when it comes to buying plants. Shortly after that post I headed to Wal-Mart to get a money order and thought i better see if they have clearanced their sad little bagged plants. To my surprise they had, yippee. I don't like to buy much there but when it comes to rescuing those little perennials I can't resist.
I picked up these six hostas at regular price for $2 each! Three August Moon and three Golden Tiara, plus the three Purple Palace Heuchera's for $2.50 each. The other plants in this photo are previous purchases.
One peony, and two bags of the these 'Amethyst' and 'America' Astilbe's. They were very large divisions much to my surprise. I got 12 Astilbe's for $10!
Not a bad looking little peony for $2.50. Lots of eyes at least.
I also bought a bag of 18 Dutch Iris 'Mrs. Saigon' for $2.50.
The is a told lily that i picked up at the farmers market a few weeks ago. Not sure which cultivar it is but I loved the foliage either way.
The silly part of all this plant buying is that I have to take them all back to MI with me when i go! I rent here and the boyfriend doesn't take care of plants no matter how much coaching he gets so... I'm going to have the trunk full of plants by the time i leave.
