I have many Japanese banana trees, which winter well in Zone 7, and get 20 to 25 feet tall in summer, with many new trees and little ornamental bananas. I love huge elephant ears, and am on the lookout for black ones. My tropicalesque garden has small plastic dinosaurs under the plants. I love big, bodacious tropicals that make my yard look like the Caribbean! I welcome suggestions for fragrant flowers that look tropical. I've used hibicus, morning glories, and passion plants. I love palms, but they don't grow fast or have a good track record for outdoors here. In my garden, if it can't stay out in winter, it dies; however, I prefer those that return.

I live in: United States

My zone is: 7
