Flowers are like teenagers, blooming gracefully into adulthood so they can brighten up otherwise lifeless cubicles. Witness the budding innocence of nature with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one potted poinsettia at Linder's Garden Center (a $30 value), valid only at the St. Paul location.
Operated by a third generation of green thumbs, Linder's Garden Center stocks its 5-acre facility with annuals, perennials, and seasonal plants cultivated in Linder-family greenhouses and outdoor plots. The gardeners incubate approximately 30,000 poinsettia plants across more than 13 acres of indoor growing space, crafting vibrant, healthy varietals that make ideal gifts for friends, family, or disenchanted mall Santa Clauses. Each poinsettia nestles into a colorful Scheurich pot and enlivens abodes with a cascading bloom of red, pink, white, coral, or burgundy petals. Each water-tight Scheurich pot is glazed inside and out, and may be reused to house freshly-cut flowers, adorn mantels, or transport ambrosia. A dazzling array of 100,000 computerized lights and 80 holiday trees illuminates the spacious garden center beginning November 19, infusing patrons with holiday spirit and a summery tan.
