Southern Belles

From garden to table.



At Flora Grubb’s San Francisco garden nursery, plants that flower almost year-round include the intriguing Solanum wendlandii, a giant potato vine with curved thorns, large leaves and showy clusters of violet blossoms from May to November, and Grevillea ‘Honey Gem’ and Grevillea ‘Moonlight’, evergreen hybrids with lacy pale-yellow racemes of flowers. These beautiful subtropical types from the Southern Hemisphere, which need sunshine and little water, slow down only in winter. “Grevilleas are well suited to coastal climates but will not take a hard freeze, so you can grow them in California but not too many other places,” Grubb says. floragrubb.com

Grevillea and Solanum wendlandii complement Umbra Shift’s subtly colored stacking, nesting, lidded Sediment line of stoneware bowls, cups and dishes designed by Dutch design firm Os+Oos. Prices range from $25 to $40. umbrashift.com
