need some suggestions

dobie1029February 22, 2009

I've been scouring the Internet looking for a tropical looking "leafy" green plant that is hardy in my zone 7b garden. I like the look of palm grass but can't find any that is hardy in my area. If you can think of something, especially with an upright growth habit, I would be much appreciative!

How about canna, New Zealand flax, hardy banana (musa basjoo or others) or a windmill palm? I'm in a colder zone so I'm not positive that all would be hardy in your area, but probably.
