Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semisuccessful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of flowers, shrubs, and other flora at The Plant Stop in Land O' Lakes.
The Plant Stop's flock of flora aficionados meanders through a sprawling meadow of native and exotic trees, shrubs, and flowers to help visitors find specific annuals and perennials. Revamp hedges or drab panic rooms by nestling a 1-gallon liriope adorned with violet blooms between existing greenery, or line walkways with the flax lily's vibrant leaves ($3.75 each). Bright pink Snow Queen hibiscuses ($8.50) brighten up lonely-hearted flowerbeds. Meanwhile, vibrant hues and distant dreams of graduating from garden nursery to in-ground grade school emanate from the yellow petals of a 1-gallon daylily wilson ($3.65).
The Plant Stop
At The Plant Stop, rows of lush foliage and vibrant blooms flourish amid sunlight and open air, surrounding visitors in hundreds of draught-resistant shrubs, flowers, and trees. Pat, a plant expert with more than 25 years experience in the landscaping business, runs this horticultural haven. Along with a staff of expert nurserymen, Pat helps customers select exotic plant life and nurture classic foliage such as flowering trees. He works with growers across Florida to stock the store's lush pathways with more than 20 varieties of clay-ball-rooted palm trees, which can thrive for many years without being staked or finishing elementary school.
At The Plant Stop's design station, landscapers chat with patrons one-on-one to draw up complementary landscape designs that incorporate plants tolerant of Florida's climate. The customer-focused staff also delivers trees free of charge.
