I agree, excellent plants in your tiki garden. Those are some Different looking plants, but Very nice. COol tiki too.

I worked out we have around 30 different species of palms, most are native to Australia but second to that would be the Madagascan ones. I can try & list them if you want.
This area would be a similar latitude to Florida's lower tip, so it's sub tropical.
We also have 4 species of bamboo. The one in the background there is b. multiplex which I'd recommend for a quick dense 3metre screen. It has yellow & green stems & grows very fast. I subdivided it from one small plant to 6 in a matter of a few months & all portions are expanding out nicely.

Tropical plants are what led me to tiki. I am so jealous of your garden. I could really enjoy just sitting there.

Don't dispair unless you get snow where you are.

It's possible to create a microclimate in your yard & grow some tropicals. Sydney is 1000k's south of here (on the coast) & I have seen species there that shouldn't grow.
In Melbourne (further 1000k's), it's rare, but I see very healthy Bangalow palms in areas where they have frosts & black ice, perhaps even snow. Bangalows look great mass planted.

G'day all!

Haven't been here for over a year but I saw a coconut palm being cut up this week & couldn't resist grabbing it all!
I'll be back for ideas then I will pick up a chisel again when time permits.

I need to fix up the dead image links in this thread sometime too
