Elephant Ear and Asparagus Fern make a great plant combination for a container garden-and they're both easy to grow! I know the asparagus fern is easy to grow inside, but need to look up other (Longwood- always worth the trip).
We love to use inexpensive Majesty palms everywhere—in rooms that need a little life and on patios and porches. It makes a gorgeous “thriller” plant in a big outdoor container—with showy Tropic Escape mandevilla and hibiscus surrounding its base.
Split-Leaf Philodendron (Monstera deliciosa) plant is a huge influence for our new tropical wedding invitation design this year. We love the iconic shape of the leaves - and incorporate it into our design.
this looks like this would work for your canna! No patio is complete without a container full of gorgeous flowers! Combine hot-colored annuals such as cannas, Japanese forestgrass and creeping Jenny for a tropical-like focal point.
