Compact tropical for zone 10
We're trying to decide what to plant in the little bed that runs next to our foundation, and we'd like to stick with tropicals. We're in USDA zone 10a in Southern California, less than 10 miles from the coast, but still probably more coastal than inland. The area is full/part sun (gets about 6 hours of direct sun during the spring and summer, about 4.5-5 during the fall and winter). The bed is about 4 feet wide and 10 feet long, but there's an eave from the garage that slightly overhangs the space so we can't have anything too tall. We also want to make sure we don't plant anything with overly aggressive roots since the bed is right next to the foundation.
Any suggestions are welcome!
