As some of you may know, I left the industry to care for 6 pools in S.E. Maine. They installed 5 ~40 X40" X30" deep planters in the area near the 2 most popular of our pools and hot tub and we need to now grow something in them.
We are looking for a 'tropical' feel. Palm trees wouldn't survive our winters and cost $$$$. I don't want anything that will shed stuff to get in my pools, I have enough trouble trying to keep up with all the %^*)&% pine needles.
I'd truly appreciate any thoughts or suggestions
