A few years ago, after attending a Garden Writers Association symposium in VanCouver, BC and shooting an episode of Oklahoma Gardening at Butchart Gardens, I stopped by a California nursery on my way home and discovered this gem of a plant.. A striking variegated selection of the “Blue Potato Tree”, or Paraguayan Nightshade as we call it, this tender plant is guaranteed to get noticed in the garden. It has bluish-purple blooms that standout magnificently against leaves so variegated, the entire plant looks almost all white. Use Variegated Paraguayan Nightshade in beds or containers and you’ll be amazed by its gorgeous foliage that doesn’t scorch even in southern summers.
