Boca joe, your plants make me "green" with envy. I followed your fertilizer schedule this past summer and had the best-looking plants I've ever had. I've also added Cordyline Paradise to my wish list after seeing the picture of yours. If I should ever be so lucky to see one here in northeast Texas, I'll grab it up. Congratulations on having the garden I strive to have.

Where did you get the giant colocasia? I live in florida and haven't seen one that tall here.
All your plants are just awesome!

Hi -

Ed- that is a giant leafed hosta to the left , I have a Homalonia out back -it has green leaves.

Mokikat- Wayside Gardens sells them, I have also seen them on EBAY.
