Palms are one of the most frequently used plant materials in Mediterranean landscape design in war m climates because their characteristic habits immediately set them apart from other plants.

A Mediterranean landscape design will include plants such as Campanula, Carex, Celmisia spectabilis (New Zealand Daisy), Diascia vigilis, Dierama dracomontanum
(Angel's Fishing Rod), Eryngium agavifloium (Sea Holly),
Euphorbia x martinii (Spurge), Festuca (Elijah Blue),
Juniperus scopulorum (Skyrocket), Knipofia (Red Hot Poker), Miscanthus sinensis, Pennisetum, Phormium, Persicaria vaccinifolium, Saponaria ocymoides (Tumbling Ted), Lavendula (lavender) and Stipa arundinacea (Pheasant's Tail Grass).

Hope the above suggestions offer some guidance!
