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

Ornamental banana (Musa or Ensete)
Hardy palms (Queen Palm)
Caladium
Hardy bamboo
Canna
Calla Lily
Ginger
