Garden Plot: Grab these gifts for the gardener on your list

Thanksgiving came early this year, and now it’s December and the holidays are upon us. That begs the question: What to get the favorite gardener on your list?

A while back, I got an interesting variegated boxwood that has creamy white mixed with just a little green on the leaves. Bayside has beautiful offbeat poinsettias with bracts in mottled coral tones. There are uncommon succulents and bromeliads by the dozens, which are easy to care for. A nice selection of air plants and conch shells to display them in would be an undemanding gift.
