A nice picture of a cool tropical garden featuring tender exotic foliage plants. The large leaved plants in the foreground are Xanthosoma (coco yam or elephant ears) These are grown annually from grocery bought tubers.
Thinking this would be amazing for the front yard under the eves. A successful Arid Tropical design relies heavily on the use of bold textures, strong contrasts and dense plantings, which is well executed here.
Hawaii garden, the smooth, coffee- and apricot-hued leaves of ti plants (Cordyline fruticosa) contrast with a blue fan palm’s corrugated fronds and elephant’s ear’s wavy green leaves. Mounded red and green tillandsias add punch in the foreground.
