Plant Sale at Home Depot

Home Depot Plants, $2.50 a piece, including 3 types of sedum and some grass

Coral Bells (Heuchera)

One of the things in life that I can’t resist is a good plant sale! I was at Home Depot today (a frequent occurrence this time of year) and I saw that the smaller (1/2 gallon) perennials were on sale for $2.50 (from $3.97). I was looking for butterscotch colored heuchera (coral bells) to add to the ones in the backyard (part shade) and fortunately they were part of the perennials on sale (yes, I did a little dance).

If you aren’t a member of the Home Depot Garden Club (free and you can join online) I recommend joining. Most of the coupons and tips are useless but I did get several plant and planter discounts that came in handy last year (including a buy one get one free tree coupon that saved my about $60 last year).

I also picked up some variegated sedums and a couple of grasses. I want to start using more perennials in my planters and these were also on my list of something to try. They are good to -40 so they should be able to stay in the planters year around (yes, less work for me) and I can infill with a few annuals.  So with about 10 minutes of work here are the front planters….

I am planning on painting them too. What do you think terracotta, red or yellow?

  1. I wish some of my perennials would work for you but too cold where you are … Can you do knock out roses???

  2. What is your urn made of? What kind of paint sticks to a resin planter? mom

    • It is plastic (from Home Depot). It was originally an ugly light gray color. I painted it black with spray paint a couple of years ago. The paint is starting to wear off though. I don’t think I used the spray paint for plastic last time, but I was thinking I would now.

  3. Thanks Sunni! I hope you come back and visit soon.
