At this time of the year there are a lot of garage sales around here, and in recent years people have started selling perennials at their sales. I have added many perennials to my garden this way without spending big bucks.
That way I can splurge on the plants I really like, HOSTAS!! Sometime in the next week or two, I want to make a trip to Wade and Gatton Nurseries, a Garden Center that features over 2,000 Hostas. Try picking several Hostas out of a selection like that....Not easy!
All of these plants I found in the last week were only one or two dollars each.
I was also thrilled to find a pink Asiatic Lily for a buck. Sometimes I end up getting a different color than what is on the label, or something I just don't care for, but I figure since I didn't put much money in it, I can get rid of it if I don't like it. I like these lily's regardless of the color.
Dwarf Purple Iris
Lemon Balm....Smells so good!
I have this in the lavender color, but I wanted a pink one too. Those colors look so pretty side by side. Now I need the white one too!
These are so lovely in a woodland garden with their nodding white flowers on very long stems.
Also known as "Toad Lily"
