Which tropical looking plants would you recommend for the nashville area? I like the cast iron plant, caladiums, elephant ear. Although they are not perennials they are the types of plants that I like. I want something very unique, not the average pansy type. Thanks, karen

You're gardening in not-so-tropical zone 6b so your choice of plants will be limited, but here are a few suggestions:
Ornamental banana (Musa or Ensete)
Hardy palms (Queen Palm)
Hardy bamboo
Calla Lily
