Surprise! This little garden center at the local Ace Hardware is run by some real gardeners and plant nuts. It's the opposite of the garden centers at the giant hardware stores. It's not very big but they have all kinds of interesting plants, including new things you read about this winter in the magazines. Last fall I saw the 2 ladies who seem to run it picking out stuff to order for the spring--like 2 kids in a candy store! They sell things that do well here-I have some nice Hostas they said would be slug resistant and it was true.

Update. I got some Digiplexis 'Illumination Flame" plants in gallon pots for $7.99 each. At Sky Nursery they were over $20 each! This is a brand new cultivar not yet available everywhere.
