late plantings

pondwelr(z5 WI)September 11, 2013

I can't resist the bargains at the big box stores, and even Steins garden center that come along after the Labor Day sales. This year I bought 3 large Rudbeckia, for a song.
Do any of you Wisconsin gardeners shell out for late bloomers/late plantings? I've had pretty good luck with them overwintering so far. However, I do mulch them well.

I have recently planted 6 blueberry shrubs, but these were purchased in the spring, and re-potted as they grew over the summer. I was trying to sell them, and these 6 were the remainder stock.
