21 Refreshingly Beautiful Outdoor Showers I Bet You'd Love to Step Into

Tropical Landscape Bed - This lush bed contains only 4 plants. The contrast in heights & color give it a well-balanced look. All of the plants will work for zone 9 (except palm-see below for alternatives), but a very cold night or frost may cause some to have foliage damage or die back to the ground-returning in Spring. Christmas Palm Tree [Queen, Foxtail, and King best suited for zone 9]. Elephant Ear (Colocasia). Hawaiian Ti Plants (Cordyline Terminalis). Philodendron (Xanadu).

Good example of layering - can use these sorts of plants in most of your garden beds. So you've got tall palms at the back, the Elephant ear adds drama, the cordylines (red ones) colour, and the lower philodendron covers the ground.

Great use of succulents in pots, and I can grow them!

I want potted plants like this all around my back patio EMM Tropical plants make a great back drop to succulents that include Agave attenuata, various jades, a large pot full of aeonium and echeveria rosettes, and purple-green Senecio jacobsenii.
