What You'll Get
If it weren't for flowers, bees could only suck nectar from picnic sandwiches, cream sodas, and goblins' tears. Give your honey the sweetest stuff with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Southeast Summer Blooms sun or shade kit (a $75 value) from American Meadows, redeemable online. Shipping of $9.95 per kit is not included with today’s Groupon.
American Meadows' Southeast Summer Blooms kits brim with five varieties of easy-to-grow blossoms. The sun package's perennials are shipped as bare roots, and once dropped in a hole, covered, and watered, they'll sprout into sturdy stalks that will return year after year, much like Honeymooners reruns. Bright and bossy Strawberry Candy day lilies shout at blue, five-petaled balloon flowers whenever they're deciding on a lunch place, and a mix of white, pink, and yellow Echinaceas stand timidly to the side, twiddling their leaves and smiling nervously at nearby bushes, which are starting to stare. Calla lily and Oriental lily bulbs explode into all-too-brief floral fireworks once earthed—as annuals, they're unlikely to come back another year.
Alternately opt for the shade kit to supply shadowy secret gardens with easy-going plants that won't beg for extra helpings of sunlight. These can include perennials such as soft purple astilbes, wild bleeding hearts, bell-bloomed Solomon's Seal, royal standard hostas, and scarlet tuberous begonias. Colors, quantities, and varieties in both kits will vary based on available inventory at redemption; possible substitutes include Asiatic lilies, peonies, and geraniums. Kits should be planted before the end of June for best results.

About American Meadows
What started out as a humble operation in Vermont has become a leading online source for bulbs, perennials, and seeds of every ilk. American Meadows is a renowned resource for all things gardening and showcases more than 1,000 varieties of plantables from all over the world, such as Sarah Bernhardt peonies, red oxford Darwin tulip bulbs, and red poppy seeds. Though they stock a vast selection, each wildflower seed package is still hand-packed by their own staff. The staff serves as a knowledgeable resource in conjunction with their robust website, which offers tools and gifts for every shade of green thumb. For even more support, customers can call or chat online to discuss flowers and ask questions about their plants.
American Meadows cultivates a skilled crew in addition to a vast select of bulbs, perennials, and seeds. Four team members are alums of a 13-week master-gardener course, who now boast expertise about topics including landscape design, soil options, and controlling garden pests such as deer or hungry neighbors.
