Plant Spotlight: Calathea

"Talk about a lovely new plant: The Fusion White calathea (Calathea‘Fusion White’) is a dwarf variety with strikingly variegated leaves. The leaves are a nice medium green with almost pure white variegation spread across each one. The underside, in contrast, is a beautiful burgundy; leaves that are folded or wrong side up will show off this coloring." Calathea "White Fusion" can reach a height of 15 inches and roughly 12 inches wide. It is hardy to zone 8.

The pleasure that gardens offer can cultivate a sense of gratitude

"We gardeners have a lot to be thankful for. With Thanksgiving less than a week away, I’ve been thinking about how fortunate I am in countless ways, many relating to that slightly chaotic project filled with flowers, vegetables and weeds that I call a garden. However you garden, you might be feeling the same. Do you plant a few pots on your patio every spring? Then give thanks that you get to try something new each year but needn’t invest a lot of time or money.
