In the early days of agriculture, people fed their plants table scraps and refused to discipline them, feeling overwhelmed by their floral cuteness. With today's Groupon, give your plants the direction, discipline, and hugs that they need. For $15, you get $35 worth of cuddly cacti, agave, yucca, native grasses, and other xeriscape-suitable prickle fruits from The Great Outdoors Nursery, one of the largest purveyors of sunny blooms and potted pokeys in the Albuquerque area.
Grab your wheelbarrow, drink deeply of the morning air, and race down the rows of razor-soft flowers. Perennials like the wooly butterfly bush start at $8, while friendly cacti like the Sonoran rainbow cactus start at $12. Load up on big-time Western-movie-set props with some tree chollas, or soften the stuntman's fall with a tuft of buffalo grass (grasses start at $9). Better absorbing than a roll of paper towels, a hand-held agave will help sop up spilled Ecto Cooler (starting at $15). The experienced plant-thusiasts at Great Outdoors will help you craft the garden of your fever dreams using less water and labor than you or your dentist thought possible.
While banana plantations and coconut palms have sprouted up here and there along the Rio Grande, sticking with native plants can be just as beauteous and magnitudes more sustainable and inexpensive. Nab this Groupon to grow a colorful, hip butterfly bar that attracts all the hottest Danaus plexippi.
