California transplant (me!) wants the tropics
As per the subject, I'm a Californian and I miss my palms, cacti, fruit trees and tropical plants in general! I DO NOT have a green thumb and I miss being able to stick these trees in the ground and water once a week!
Can you all tell me of tropical (or tropical look alikes) that will grow in the Nashville area? We are hardiness zone 6b.
Please, please help me find some that I won't have to bring indoors for the winter. I'm already babying a clementine and meyers lemon and, like I said, I don't have a green thumb. I need some pretty hardy plants and trees (if they exist for this area!)
I've been reading about windmill palms...thoughts?
Also Musa Basjoo (banana plants)
