some interesting plants
that I got from a place in ocala, called Eldon's tropicals. The owner is super nice and seems very knowledgable about unusual plants.
I'm most excited about some cold-hardy pineapple (down to 25deg!), decorative as well with red foliage. Some other very tough ornamentals: something called the banana plant with yellowish flowers, something called broken necklace which is apparently a native, a non-invasive wysteria, and some unusually-colored elephant ears, and Abyssinian banana.
All supposed to be care-free and drought-proof once established. We'll see!
