Beautiful personal slice of paradise you've got there, tikicoma.

Your garden looks amazing. Would never guess you've had a colder summer.

don't know the name of this ginger but it's bloomed every year for the last 12 years.

I've always loved tropical plants and flowers. Nothing screams "paradise" like huge Elephant Ears, fragrant Plumeria, colorful hibiscus and, of course, palm trees! Since my recent move from the east coast to the west coast, where the climate is more amiable towards tropicals, I have developed that love even deeper. I'd actually rather have a "Backyard Jungle" over a tiki bar for my escapism. Until that day comes, I can only dream...and snag eye-candy images off the 'net! So, here are some I've collected over the past few years that really trip my trigger. I can picture sipping a mai tai with exotica music on the hi-fi in any one of these "backyards"!

Luke, I almost gushed about what a beautiful backyard you have, good thing I actually read instead of just looking at the pics

Good luck with your dream backyard

I'd of done the same thing, Mike! LOL

Man, if I had any one of those backyards, I'd be throwing a huge TC party for sure!

No kidding...I especially like that first one. At this point, I would be happy to have a swim spa and a palm tree in my backyard...LOL

Clams,
Get yourself a copy of Sunset’s garden book for your region-for example here in Calif. I use the western garden version.
Check out your local nurseries. Most independent nurseries sell what grows well in your area. The “big box" stores will sell you whatever puts moolah in their pocket.
Good luck and post progress pix
Cheers
