Starting to plan landscaping bed to surround back of my pool that is currently under construction. I'd like to have a semi tropical look. I am in the Houston area so I am looking for fairly hearty plants that will live through the occasional freezes that may occur each winter.
Any specific recommendations on specific palm trees? I have heard Mexican/Desert Fan Palms are good. Any downsides?
Right now I am thinking of the following:
baby bottle brush
other plants...that I don't know the name of but can picture in my mind...not sure why I started this list!
I'd love to see any pics of ways others have landscaped around their pools !
Thanks in advance
