PUCKER UP If you don’t have room in your yard for a lemon tree, here’s one that can be grown as a houseplant. The American Wonder Lemon ‘Ponderosa’ plant is said to produce a heavy surge of fragrant white flowers in spring, followed by tiny lemons in equally copious amounts. The lemons can grow up to 5 pounds each, yet the plant size stays manageable. Find the Ponderosa Lemon, as well as Ponderosa Lemon Soap, at logees.com.

EASY ROSES If you love roses but feel they are too complicated or finicky to grow—you are not alone. In Everyday Roses: How to Grow Knock Out and Other Easy-Care Garden Roses (Taunton Press), Certified Rosarian Paul Zimmerman helps put your fears to rest. Through this guide to planting and maintaining the perfect rose, gardeners of all levels will appreciate the versatility, wide range of color, and season-long blooming cycle of these sometimes misunderstood beauties.
LAZY DAZE Get your party on with the Agave Lazy Susan from The Image House at Home. The agave picture was taken by Tucson photographer Jocelyn Muscarello and then reverse-printed on tempered glass. The useable work of art is available in 12", 15" or 22" diameters and also can be ordered as a table top. The company works with various artists to create a wide range of printed products. Find this one and others at Today’s Patio, Scottsdale, (480) 367-9700.
