According to an old hot-young-wives' tale, every time a flower blooms, an angel ties its shoes. Help the heavens loop it, swoop it, and smell the roses with today's green-thumbed Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of sustainable plants at Lotus Lawn & Garden, located along Highway 5 in Chanhassen.
Lotus's plant products have all been preferentially purchased from vendors who practice sustainable techniques. Harden your garden with colorful flower four-packs filled with wide-ranging bloomers such as begonias, marigolds, impatiens, petunias, pansies, and more for only $1.99. Or go on a tree spree with nearly 125 varieties of deciduous and evergreen trees, including Honeycrisp apple trees for $69.99 and autumn blaze maple trees starting at $89.99. You can even spawn beautiful roses—those symbolic flowering shrubs so often associated with romance and Burton Gilliam—from your home turf for $29.99. The yield from pots of hearty herbs (parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, basil, $3.99) will spice up one's daily diet of boiled gruel and potato ice cream. For something that comes back each spring, unlike icicles and NBC sitcoms, load up on perennial flowers. For $6.99, you can choose from varieties such as Salvia (not the kind that makes you see stuff, the other kind), Rudbeckia, Phlox, and Veronica or, if you prefer, Betty.
Lotus Lawn & Garden has been serving the Twin Cities metro area for over 20 years as a locally owned business. Drive around the surrounding neighborhoods and you'll find them sprinkled with thousands of herbaceous heroes purchased from the garden center. As blooming flowers mark the start of spring and hibernating humans emerge from caves to clear out the bears that have squatted in their houses all winter, reward the ground for constantly supporting your lumbar with a little flower power from Lotus Lawn & Garden.
Lotus Lawn & Garden expects to be fully stocked by the end of early spring.
