      Tree ferns would be beautiful architectural plants against the wall they do well in shade and won't be too big and block out light

      Dicksonia antarctica (one species of the Australian tree ferns) - these or other shade bush or tree will be planted on the right side of the family porch to provide shelter from the afternoon sun

      dicksonia antarctica (australian tree fern) These are the statement plants I instantly thought would lend themselves to your space. They love shade and create a lush feel immediately - but as mentioned they don't come cheap so a couple placed around sitting area to provide overhead canopy would probably be enough. I can get hold of a couple of boys who import them so buying direct from them would work out best value.

      Don't love fern trees because they make me itchy, but they do look great in a tropical garden.

    Asplenium australasicum (bird nest fern). Large long evergreen fronds with a slight curved tip. This Australian native fern prefers a cool, moist shaded spot and is ideal for a shady garden or pot. Grows 1.5m high x 3m wide.

    Love the lights inside the plants/trees! This would look so cool in the backyard behind the seating surrounding the firepit!

    Boston Fern These houseplants act as humidifiers: They restore moisture to the air by releasing water vapor in exchange for atmospheric pollutants, which the plants convert to fuel.
