Few gardeners really explore the possibilities, but this is part of what makes it fun for me. Here's an example where I've mixed some less common plants together; a palm, some succulents, and some tropical looking bromeliads, and all are playing nice together...

I've really been enjoying your photos. Glad you are posting the clickable links.

What kind of site do Aeoniums prefer? I have yet to have decent success with them when they are planted in the ground.
