The difficulty is that some of those plants will go dormant in the dry season. I see more turmeric has come up, so have to be careful I do not create bare patches.. I have that in the veggie perennial bed now, so will remove it from the corner, leaving more room for flowers. My large heleconia is starting to flower, but I wonder at my logic of planting this - I think it is too big for this area.
This little anthirium was started from a piece of my neighbours plant, and I love the deep red colour. I hope it doesn't get lost in amongst the bigger, more robust pink anthirium.
How come other gardeners seem to manage to plant plants that stay the size they are supposed to and don't run rampant through the garden, obliterating other plants as they go.
Oh yes! They don't live in the tropics.
