Does anyone recognize (any/all of) the 3 plants in this pic? Spotted in St. Augustine, FL last weekend. TIA!

That's what I would have guessed, but it would have been just a guess. TYVM!

TYVM! That does look like a match. I was going to take a closer pic but got distracted by peacocks (at Fountain of Youth park.) "Crinum" should be a good enough label for a multi-pic.

Hi Tiffany! So, did you enjoy St. Augustine? It's one of my favorite cities; my husband and I used to spend weekends there years ago and ride our bicycles all over town. It's really beautiful during the winter months during the festival of lights when every building and the Bridge of Lions is all lit up!

I agree, the variegated leaf plants look like Variegated Shell Ginger (Alpinia zerumbet 'Variegata')

The palms may be Wild Date Palm (Phoenix sylvestris)
Another photo for comparison: http://www.bing.com/images/sea...

At first I thought the tall purplish-brown leaf plant might be a variety of Cordyline but upon closer view, it might be a Bromeliad, maybe Aechmea or Vriesea.

Thanks for the input, Lin! And LOL, yours is a similar pic! Gorgeous, BTW!

Yes, we had so much fun!! My legs & feet were sore for a couple days after from so much walking. Great food, unforgettable sights. Both of us are anxious to go back. What a great vibe in that city! Of course we have plenty of time now that we've drank from the fountain of youth. I told the lady at the ticket booth that we'd be seeing a lot of her over the years. :+)

Tiffany, I'm glad you had a good time on your visit to St. Augustine; it really is a fun city and I know what you mean about your feet getting real tired from all the walking! I can't do it during the heat anymore ... a lot easier during the winter months when the temp's are lower. Green Grin!

That one photo in your first photo has been driving me crazy and I'm pretty sure it's the same plants I saw in a roadside planting yesterday in Palm Bay, Florida. I think it's a variety of Red Crinum:

Thanks for your efforts! With nothing more than that faraway pic to go on, I think Crinum genus is probably specific enough if I end up submitting that as a multi-plant pic. I saw it up close, but failed to take a closer pic and I don't trust what I think I remember seeing to try to be more specific but am sure it's a Crinum of some kind.
