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).

Heliconia bihai cv. Chocolate Dancer | Bamboo Land Nursery QLD Australia
Heliconia bihai 'Chocolate Dancer' - A hardy and cold tolerant heliconia with chocolate coloured bracts with yellow lips. A good landscaping plant.
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)
