Out of zone VA garden

Hey I just wanted to share a picture of my out of zone garden that I have been working on for a year or two. I live in central VA and everyday I find other interesting plants that are not seen growing in my area often.


I would always love to hear others suggestions on plants to experiment with.

Currently working with:
Trachycarpus Fortunei
Several Crinum varieties
Garden Amarylis
Agave Parryii Truncata
A few types of Jasmine/Jessamine
A few Gardenias
A few Opuntia
Needle Palms
Yucca Rostrata
Red Yucca
Rain Lilies
Basjoo Banana

Any other ideas of some not commonly seen plants that I could add to this garden.

If you're still around, how much of this overwinters? Do you treat some as annuals (ginger, for instance)?
