Shiny? hmm. Mine seem sort of silvery... not sure if we're pulling the same ones, LOL. Lots of little mulberry seedlings here with serrated leaves, also... trying to get them up while they're 4 inches tall with 8 inch taproots rather than waiting until that root goes really deep!
I just got a big rhodi (3 gallon pot at least, maybe 5?) at Home Depot for $24, just the variety ('Royal Purple') I'd been drooling over at Dutch Plant Farms for $40. Got a nice vigorous clematis ('Snow Queen') for $12, too... not a super-bargain, but nice prices on plants that really (honestly!) were on my "list."
Thanks for posting that, Bob! We've got to get some more pre-orders so we can get all those new varieties -- doubles, speckles, picotee edges, OH MY.
MamaJ just posted a thread... end of season sale on Badseed's coleus, just $1.50 each (plus shipping). !!!
She sends nicely rooted little plants, quite likely big enough to pinch extra starts from their tops, and her packing is top notch... I ordered from Badseed in a major heatwave last June, and all the plants arrived in fine shape.

Thanks Bob, wish they did that here
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
