If it weren't for flowers, bees could only suck nectar from picnic sandwiches, cream sodas, and goblins' tears. Cull Mother Nature's sweetest stuff with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of annuals, perennials, trees, and shrubs at Black Diamond, Inc.'s locations in Toledo and Perrysburg.
For almost 60 years, family-owned Black Diamond, Inc. has plucked a bouquet of well-versed horticulturists to grow and tend its vast glassed-in fields of flowers, vegetables, trees, and shrubs. Having known many of Black Diamond, Inc.’s plants since their tender, botanic infancy, its greenery gurus pride themselves on being able to go beyond cursory recommendations to in-depth discussions of plants and how each interacts with fertilizers, soil, insecticides, and their ilk. Take home the recurrent colors of perennial flowers ($2.99–$11.99) such as the bloomerang—a repeat-blooming lilac that makes for better lawn fixtures than repeat-capsizing lilacs—or other low-maintenance, color-exuding favorites such as the knockout shrub rose or endless summer hydrangea. Annuals ($1.19–$29.99) provide summer-long flowerage with such pedal-wielders as the rocket mix snapdragon or shade-loving impatiens in accent watermelon. Vegetables ($0.89–$11.99) fill hunger voids and double as props during choreographed food fights in the form of roma tomatoes or black beauty eggplants, and shrubs ($9.99–$79.99) and a huge inventory of trees ($69.99–$299.99) serve up too-large-for-serving-platters of shade and yard ornamentation.
