You're in USDA Zone 9, one of the smallest regions in the plant hardiness zone map. Zone 9 also includes central Florida, the Gulf coast of Louisiana and Texas. This mild-winter region is characterized by a long growing season and almost winter freeze. Although it might seem that just about any plant could do well in such a mild area, Zone 9 (and warmer) is not good for plants that require a winter chill. Those that flourish include Asparagus setaceus (Asparagus fern), Syzygium paniculatum (Australian bush cherry), and Fuchsia hybrids (Fuchsia). You might try growing Kaffir plum, hackberry or mahonia (Oregon grape) in a container placed in a sunny spot.
