Markham Roberts: Drop dead East Coast chic with a nod to Indianapolis

The way New York designer Markham Roberts sees the world is large, bold, colorful and highly personalized, a sensitivity he attributes to the most influential person in his life - his late grandmother Harriet Greathouse Cain. In her houses in Indianapolis, a city where he grew up, as well as her vacation homes, he observed how to live comfortably and entertain, rather than be surrounded by staid stage sets for show. "I learned so much from the joy of being in those houses, whether I recognized it or it was subconscious," he says.

On Gardening: Giant leopard plant a spectacular member of the aster family

Members of the aster family can be described by a lot of wonderful adjectives, but "lush" and "tropical" are typically not among them. Yet that is the case with the giant leopard plant. Botanically speaking, I am referring to Farfugium japonicum 'Giganteum,' and though it is found growing on rocky cliffs in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, it is turning some of the squares here in Savannah, Ga., into visions of garden paradise.
