Oh my, that is such a cutie! I've never seen that dwarf Little Black Magic but if it only gets to @ 2 feet in height, I sure would love to find one!

Me too. nodding Lowe's carries Southern Living plants. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one. Whenever I go out of town, I look for the local Lowe's. I find lots of things that aren't carried by my store. The stores in the Charleston area get lots of different varieties, as they are in a warmer zone and a coastal area known for tourists. They also have larger gardening departments, which don't slow down much in the winter. What doesn't sell before the next shipment, or plants that go out of bloom, get marked down in order to get rid of them quickly. That's when I like to show up. They don't discount half dead plants. nodding

Good to know. Which stores, James Island? Our local Lowe's occasionally has a few SL shrubs like the new abelias but that is about it. Also, with a few exceptions, they wait until the plants are pretty dead before they are marked down.
Minds are like parachutes; they work better when they are open.

The store in Summerville is my favorite, Alice. I do occasionally find nice mark downs on the houseplants at the one on James Island. When I was in Beaufort last year while vacationing on Fripp Island, I found a Sago Palm in a cute little ceramic bowl for $3. nodding Of course, I had to remove it from the bowl, which I wanted for something else, as it had no drainage hole and remove the glued on rocks.
