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.

GREEN PATH IN GARDEN. I'm going to plant a lot of green grassy plants around the yard so I don't have to mow any longer.

This border combination of just three plants works well and looks so neat and tidy.  Palms (maybe not as tall as these ones - something much smaller underplanted with bromeliads and xanadu)

- This Mosman garden of ours would be the perfect spot to kick back and relax in this warm weather. Giant bromeliads, Philodendron xanadu and Cabbage Palms frame the granite cobbled pathway to the swimming pool. Very lush!
