Suggestions needed - landscaping in NO
When my friend in Lakeview finishes restoring her house, I will help her by installing new landscape plants, and I would appreciate suggestions. The house is a stucco cottage. A tropical look would be nice (One banana tree survived - it's now one of 7!). Plants that attract butterflies would be particularly welcome. Does Abelia do well in the area? I don't remember seeing any when I live in NO.
If you know of good places to get landscape plants I would like to hear of them. I know of Charvet's and Perino's.
