Musa basjoo are starting to take off. This is so very exciting to me. Nothing says tropical like some massive banana trees. It always takes two or three ratty leaves in the spring before these really start looking good. In other words, by next week, beautiful nanners.
It's that same softness that helps contrast all the pointy edges like on this yucca gloriosa variegata.
And for all the variegated fans...
Now moving into some shade. This Acuba Japonica really brightens things up. It's electric!
weeds... some more resilient than others.
