I belong to Arbor Farms Nursery's "club" and received a birthday coupon, good toward one perennial plant (priced $9.50 or less). Of course, the unspoken rule is one does not go to a nursery and pick up only one free plant. And the one I picked cost a bit more, so I paid the difference, plus picked out another plant from the bargain bin.

That was the bargain. For my free plant, I looked and looked and looked some more. Slim pickings this time of year. I had almost settled on a sedum when I chatted up one of the employees re coreopsis and why they are not very hardy. She mentioned that she liked 'Route 66'. So guess what I ended up with.
