I have mostly tropical plants/trees in my yard. What can i plant and keep up with the theme in a shaded area. It is the back corner of my fence, a focal point area and it needs height at least 5 feet but not taller than 10.

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I would try caladiums, white butterfly ginger, elephant ears, ferns of various types, and the shrubs Fatsia and Gold Dust Aucuba.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
