Re: sales


RE > > distressed and you are willing to chance trying to bring it back to
health.
At the 30% off I also picked up a very stressd Polemonium 'Brise d'Anjou'.
Appeared to have died back to the crown but had a fresh 4 inch start coming
out of it.  Reg price was 12.95.  Marked down to $2.50; that's $1.75 after
the 30%.  This particular cultivar is notorious for not coming back; there
are a few newer variegated Jacob's Ladders out there that have better
staying power.  But for under $2 I'll give it a try.  This particular
nursery having the sale is the best full-line nursery in our area IMO.  A
bit expensive, but more likely than any other to have novel selections.  And
everything there is well taken care of.
