Help me finish the design of my new South FL landscape, PART 2!
This is a continuation of my first thread here. I'm pretty much done with the back (pictures to come), and now I'm moving to the big job -- the front yard. I've learned quite a bit over the past month or two, especially the idea that "less is more".
Below is my preliminary design. The goal of this exercise is to tweak the beds, decide on the specific plants, and get going!
Can a canary date palm fit? Or am I limited to the sylvester?
Is filling the entire bed in the center area with caladium "white christmas" feasible? I saw it at a hotel in miami, and I thought it was stunning. But if they only last a few months and are super expensive, then it may not be a good idea.
What is the largest, most stunning bromeliads you can think of that can go in the low sun courtyard?
The big bed on the right side is going to be difficult.
Here is a panoramic shot that might help put things into perspective:
