It may be cold outside,but I am thinking about landscaping around our new pool. We would like a tropical look. We bought a few plants in the late fall and are in the garage greenhouse for now. We have a fan palm, needle palm, red yuccas, some canna lilies, liriope, and gardenias. Also picked up some elephant ear bulbs from Sam's this week. We would like to get some bananna trees also.
Alot of these plants will die off in the late fall after a frost and hopefully come back the following year.
So, what else could we plant that would be more of an evergreen and still go with a tropical look? That way in the winter it's not so barren looking. The area behind our pool gets mostly full sun.
