Before humanity tamed plantkind, feral hydrangeas terrorized picnic-goers, and wild Christmas trees bereft of ornaments roamed the plains, howling mournfully at the moon. Celebrate the relative peace of hominid dominion with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of plants, flowers, and gifts at Cedar Grove Gardens.
Cedar Grove Gardens marries a lush inventory of garden-ready botany with astute flower-arranging skills and a full-service gift shop. Portable plants reside in sturdy 12" patio pots ($18.95), replete with annuals that splash kaleidoscopic color onto steps and into living rooms and carefully balanced juggling acts. Returning beauty is rooted in verdant perennials ($6.95–$23.95) from cheery, ornamental grasses to the shade-skulking angst of a hosta. Cedar Grove Gardens' selection of cards ($1.95+) makes tidings easy to bear, and the shop's website keeps customers abreast of new arrivals, ensuring that customers don't accidentally gift last year's annuals.
