We can't enjoy our bananas outdoors all year in Indiana, but they sure like it over the summer.

Fantastic tropical garden! What is the dark maroon colored plant along the Calodora?

Thanks for the nice comment.
The taller dark maroon colored plants are a variety of tall amaranth. The shorter more purple ones are perilla. Both come back each year from seeds that are dropped, they can almost be a nuisance. The amaranth and perilla are both edible, perilla is a japanese herb and used in some sushi, amaranth leaves can be eaten like spinach.
I sell plants of both in the spring from my greenhouse, but I can only sell them once, the next year you already have them. bummer!
