I was looking for 'Knock-out' roses today and the only ones I could find here in my town were $19 to $25 for a 3-gallon plant. (I actually wanted 1 gal. plants.) I went to Lowes in Douglasville and they had 3-gallon plants for $12.99 and double bloom plants in 3 gal. containers for $14.99. They were very bud-loaded and healthy. Wow, the prices sure do vary!

Where can I get cross vine?

The Home Depot on 92 in Roswell had one gallon 'Tangerine Beauty' crossvine last week for $7.43 (who comes up with these prices?).

After looking at comments about crossvine or trumpet climber, I think I will pass. It seems to be described as the vine from he!!.

Actually those comments are usually reserved for Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans), not Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata).

Went to HD Friday to pick up some mulch(used all of my free pine needles, for the first time,ever!)and they were unloading 3-gal.KO Roses, which appeared to have been delivered in the rear of a open bed truck. The leaves and blooms(what was left of them), were very tattered and few unopened buds.
They were priced at $18 or maybe $20, no one was sure. I wouldn't have paid more than $1 for them, as they were in such bad shape.

I have bought most of my 25 or so knockouts in the fall at 50-75% off. They usually looked pretty bad. The following spring, however! Gorgeous. These are really tough plants and I wouldn't worry about some abuse from the store or truck. But I would want them marked down.
