Boca, I always get in trouble when I look at your photos! My idea list gets longer and money flies out of my pockets. I have paid attention to foliage more this year and turned out some great combination. Your my inspiration! LOL! Awesome hibiscus.

I will never, ever grow tired of your gardens, Joe. You've taught me to try growing things in containers that I would never have tried before. I may never have the gardens you have, but darn it, I'm sure trying! :))

Thank you for continuing to post pictures. I love 'em!

The Alocasia lutea is BEAUTIFUL! I just got that and it is hardy to zone 7.

Wonderful albums of great plants! I looked thru 100s till my eyes went blurry. The rest will have to wait for another day. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, what are you feeding those plants? That banana plant is unreal. Do you have to bring those in for the winter? I would love to try a banana here but dont have room to over winter them. I love those elephant ears as well, I have some but they are the more common kind, dont know the name. Love your gardens, keep more photos coming.

thanks spage1,

I really push the fert and water on the plants, You can email me direct for details.

And you CAN grow a banana, they store easily in a dry cool place as a corm . You cut off the stems and leaves and are left with just a small portion of the stem and corm (kinda like a club).

I will try to post some photos when I disassemble next month.
