Her backyard is really huge with an elongated heart-shaped pool with 9 beautiful existing palm trees (3) on each side of the pool.

Um, isn't she already living in a tropical paradise? I have a 3 foot by 5 foot balcony, always in the shade, made of concrete, that is frozen most of the winter... you Californians. Sheesh!

Don;t worry. I'm just jealous!

What plants, palms, trees, shrubs, flowers (flora & fauna) would you suggest for our Southern California climate? What works? What to avoid? What is easy to care for and maintain?

elephant ears, cannas, banana trees, plumerias, hardy hibiscus. you can easily find these on ebay or bananagarden.org. they have links to their other sites where they sell heliconias,gingers etc.

good luck and post some pics for us fellow gardeners to enjoy!
