On this episode we’re daring to dream big and talking about which plants we’d be willing to spend an entire paycheck on. We’re calling these coveted gems, Splurge Plants. A hefty price tag isn’t the only way a plant can make this list, though. It could be a plant that’s not hardy to our particular zone but we’d be willing to set up a heater by its side all winter just to have it in our gardens. Other selections made our list because we’ve seen it, drooled over it, but haven’t had the opportunity to add it to the garden lineup…yet. You get the gist. And before you start thinking this is our “fantasy” episode, we decided these all had to be real plants. No blue roses or unicorn trees.
