Forget the photos in any of the magazines.
Research your plants,,what you really want in your gardens. If the varieties you really want..usually online or at local nurseries.....are more expensive then go for them. Actually I find they are not more expensive but they are better in every way.
You will never get other than the usual plants in the supermarkets.....fine if that's what you want. It's hjghly satisfying to me when a not so common plant grows well in my garden.....the whole quality of the garden improves.
So, yes, getting something better is worth the extra
