Answer: Plants with tropical looking foliage include Kniphofia, Fatsia japonica and Ensete (banana). All can be kept within 3'-4' in height with annual pruning. Most palms are slow-growing, and those that have feathery, flowing fronds include Livistona chinensis and Chamaerops. In your mild winter climate you can plant most any time of the year. I like to plant in early spring, just because I'm anxious for a new growing season to begin! Hope the above helps you choose just the right plants for your garden!
