Blanchette Gardens—a family-owned operation for the past 30 years—grows about 80,000 containers of perennials each season, supplying customers' yards with both exotic and classic varieties. Easy-to-grow coreopsis verticillata variations such as Crème Brulee, Moonbeam, and Zagreb (12–18", $6.95) thrive in sunny gardens and resist droughts on desert islands, and Carin eupatorium decorate moist soil with silver-pink blossoms (72", $8.95). When exposed to the sun, Pippi Longstocking's leafy twin, the umbellata bluebeard, sprouts freckles on its flowery face. Little Drumstick allium (8", $6.95) are also primed for planting, and can easily fill rock gardens with pale-purple blooms and, if squeezed, the scent of fried chicken.

Founded by John McCue in 1933, McCue Garden Center has passed down through three generations of tree tenders and plant whisperers. Now, 79 years later, the family's center has blossomed to include two locations: the garden center in Woburn, and McCue's Flower Outlet in Billerica. Along with a knowledgeable staff, the McCue family helps visitors at each of the locations select healthy flowers, shrubs, and trees from the nursery or organic soils and fertilizer from the store, and oversees an adjoining florist shop, which churns out colorful arrangements and lovely long-stemmed roses daily. They update the store's ample inventory to suit the seasons, with selections such as statuary, flowers, and vegetable plants in the summer and fresh balsam Christmas trees, wreaths, and poinsettia-shaped snow cones in the winter. In addition to celebrating the earth's constant revolution with a rotating array of seasonally appropriate plants, they host a wealth of holiday festivities, from October's corn maze to spring's Easter-egg hunt.
