Veronica’s Delaware Garden

Today we’re visiting Veronica Labate’s garden.

When I was a child my mother would give me Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum, Zones 4–9) to take to school for show and tell. I have moved it to each house I’ve lived in. It now resides in Lewes, Delaware. The small garden was started five years ago from a blank slate and, like all gardens, is constantly changing as things grow.
