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.

The staff at Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt rejects the oft-touted claim that Americans don?t care about nutrition. The problem, they say, has more to do with selection than anything else; most low-calorie sweets don?t hold a candle to a fudge brownie or a warm slice of apple pie. They kept this in mind when crafting their frozen-yogurt recipes, working tireless to develop a healthy?and equally delicious?alternative to the dessert status quo by turning to decadent confections and just-picked fruits for inspiration.
Their experiments thus far have yielded more than 60 frozen yogurt flavors, which take turns pumping through the self-serve machines that line their colorful shop?s wall. Before taking a seat in a bright orange chair, guests fill their dishes with cool, low-fat swirls of chocolate peanut butter, wedding cake, and a classic tart that bites as pleasantly as a teething kitten. Juicy strawberries, crunchy granola, and gooey chocolate sauce headline a smorgasbord of at least 30 toppings ready to scooped or poured into cups before their final weigh-in.
