The ground is filled with more than semicursed treasure chests and fully candied dinosaur bones. Let nature's soil sitters watch over your subterranean cache with today's Groupon to Wayside Gardens' online store. Choose between the following options:
• For $24, you get $50 worth of plants and bulbs.

Specializing in hard-to-find foliage, Wayside Gardens' mail-order nursery has been shipping its broad selection of container and bare-root plants to backyards around the United States for more than 90 years. Hardy and adaptable, Butterfly Blue scabiosa ($8.95) can withstand climactic stresses such as heat, drought, and exposure to Pauly Shore movies. Alternatively, pack a planter with silky Ice Blue clematis ($27.95 for a 1-gallon pot) or one of 24 types of irises ($7.95–$21.95), which are shipped as bulbs so you can nurture them from birth.
Green thumbs hand-pack each plant before they're spirited away to customers' doorsteps by an army of photosynthetic liverymen. Shipping starts at $4.95 for orders of $9.95 and under, and shipping prices increase based on the merchandise subtotal.
