Any experience with gardens that looks like Northern Mediterranean (South of France or Black Sea coastal climate)?
I'm growing some subtropical plants as houseplants, for the summer outdoors, and other (hardy) - outdoors. This is really a mix of plants from different climatic zones, including higher altitudes, not pure coastal Mediterranean: oleandres, ferns, rhododendrons, hibiscus.
Plan to find Powder Puff tree as a smaller replacement for a Mimosa (Silk tree, Albizia julibrissin) and small growing pine tree.
Can anything similar be grown as perennials, or grow fast enough to be planted as annuals?
I was impressed when found that eucalyptus can be grown outdoors as annual or even perennial.
