best Lowe's/HD in NOVA?

I have just moved from SC to northern Virgina and I miss the great selection of houseplants my local Lowe's and Home Depot had. I have been to the Lowe's at Potomac Mills and was shocked at the lack of houseplants. I live near Old Town and was wondering if anyone could point me to Lowe's or Home Depots that have quality houseplants like I'm used to.

I will check out Merrifield garden Center, but I tend to only hit garden centers for very rare/unusual things. I miss buying hoyas, etc. at 8:30 on a Friday night!

RE: best Lowe's/HD in NOVA?

I'm in Montgomery County, MD, not far from you, and hate to say that the HD's, Lowe's and other big box stores in this area all have disappointing house/tropical plant selections. It's nothing like the stores further south. Once in a while they'll get something interesting but you'd better get there fast, before the employees kill it : ( You are much better off shopping in a dedicated nursery or better yet online.
