This particular tropical garden scene features the border which receives the maximum amount of sun during the growing season. During the winter this border receives none at all. As a result it is given over entirely to growing big leaved tropical plants during the frost free months. The exceptions are in the foreground.
The key players here are:
- Chamaerops humilis - the small fan palm is under planted with:
- Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' and:
- Aloe aristrata - in the small pot but also in the ground (not visible in this shot)
