Price-Wise Perennial Shopping

I wanted plants with lots of color and texture around the pond. So between my plant-guru father-in-law's advice and my own research I knew what I wanted, and scored shrubs and perennials for up to 70 percent off at end-of-season sales. I spent the next two years planting about 150 plants.

Shown: 'Rose Glow' barberry, zinnias, and petunias now line the walkway from the driveway to the house.
