We have people who pay upwards of $5000.00 or more on a single cactus plant, primarily Saguaros and other exotic rare cacti.

I'd gladly pay $50 for a large oak leaf hydrangea. I will be looking for one this fall. Was it ball and burlap or container grown?

$50???? I just saw one locally in 3 gallon containers for $21 Not saying where now, because I am still figuring out where to put it! LOL My neighbor was making sounds about wanting one, too. They are pretty things when in bloom.

There was a TV show about how far they have to go to get certain cacti and "natives" for fancy gardens recently, but somehow the true cost never came through. Maybe some of the rather barren looking homes we saw in Las Cruces were very expensive landscapes after all.

I've never spend more than $40 but my mom paid a couple hundred for some rare dwarf tree once. It's the pride of her garden and she won't even let her gardener touch it when he comes to trim trees for her. LOL.

I had to pay about $40 to get a larger lorapetulum to replace the dead one in my back yard so it would match the 2 yr old ones I had.

We did pay a LOT of $ for our river birches/maple and ornamental pom poms because I wanted mature, larger specimens. My landscaper gets me great deals from our wholesale nursery in the area and only charges me for his time.

My wife won't tell me how much she spends on various plants and flowers so I don't know.

For non-trees or shrubs, probably not more than $7. Typically, I plant seedlings from seed pods I've collected, or shop nursery sales. If I pay full price, its generally for a pot no larger than six inches.

I don't plant annuals unless they will provide seeds and will regenerate themselves.
