About our cover…

Back when he was director of horticultural research at the Dallas Arboretum, Jimmy Turner would tantalize my listeners (and me) each week with the description of a plant most of us had never grown.

One day he spoke of Solomon’s Seal, Polygonatum odoratum ‘Variegatum’ and my ears perked up. Something for shade? Something really durable, and with color to boot? I stopped by a nursery that afternoon and bought all that they had, and these several plants have been thriving near our front door ever since. I took this photo just a few days ago. This planting has looked great since early spring!

You may find them in nurseries now, but they’re more commonly available in spring. They’re also available online, and some growers have 10 or 15 different selections. Photo © Neil Sperry
