Flowers are our planet's way of reassuring people and animals that no matter how many winters the earth endures, it still has the virility to grow its own hair. Today's Groupon lets you comb the planet's beautiful floral tresses: for $20, you get $40 worth of locally grown perennial plants at High Country Gardens.
A seed-spreading outlet for green thumbs, High Country Gardens houses a vast array of hardy xeric perennials that can survive dry desert climates. Unlike the ever-popular sunflower, which has to be harvested from the solar surface by fireproof astronauts, High Country’s flora grows locally in nearby Bernalillo and arrives fresh daily. The garden perennials come in a wide variety of striking colors, such as Magnus echinacea, whose fuchsia face warmly greets mailmen and boombox-hoisting John Cusack impersonators ($8.49 each); gold-hued Moonshine yarrow ($5.99 each); or regal Lady in Black aster ($8.49 each).
