Thank you Mskitty but those are accidental. I did not plan it that way. Each time I have an extra nana I just find any opening and plant it there.
That's nice of you for complementing.
Like I said this forum is very comforting. I have another forum that I post pictures of my plants but not one even say any comment for the last 6 months or more for all the pictures that I posted. I am thinking to quit posting because of non appreciation.

i understand the frustration. i tucked a ornata bronze, lavander, and ornata green in my front flower bed( in front of my house) and between those, the dalhias,cannas and ees i have daylilies and tiger lilies mixed with them.i did it the old fashioned way... i planted the nanas and dropped the bulbs and tubers on the ground and where they landed is where they got planted. lol! i love green but a little color makes it look better.

Pauly:
I understand your feeling Pauly. I used to live in the high dessert of California where you pay your water by the gallons. When I was new there, I planted many shrubs in my yard and oh! how hard did I worked those caliched desert soil just so my plants can stay on the ground but when I received my first water bill? boy did I changed my mind very quickly. Was glad the rabbits and the dessert rats helped me decide to pull my plants out because they ate my plants too very quickly for my plants were the only ones green over the dessert.
Here? water bill is very negligible. Besides moisture is very high so I don't water much.

Oh, boy! Have I?
But I always find ways to plant them however they are so close.
It's addicting.

Thank you Casie.
You know your Pisang Klotek is growing very nicely now.I thought it would not pull out last Winter but look at it now!
That's why I don't give up even if my nanas look gloomy.

Thank you Deb. It also goes with your feelings. When you feel that you accomplish something beautiful, you feel great!

Here's the pisang klotek that I "won" in Momese banana contest last year.

And here's a kandrian banana that Harvey got for me in San Diego. On the left is a enano giganti that Joe real gave me. These are panted in my pergola plat. I have the materials now to protect the plat from the cold next winter.
