Default Tropical bed pictures from tonight!

Here are some pictures of my tropical beds. This one is facing west in front of the house. Pictured is one washingtonia robusta and two super dwarf cavendishes:



Two new fronds growing on the washy:



Backyard mulch bed at the back of the property. There are eight musa basjoo's back here:

Wow - I'm liking the shape of the last bed. I might nick that for our garden . Those Basjoo's should form a stunning jungle of foliage in a short amount of time, I can't wait to see pics of them when they're mature! Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments guys!

The grass is Penncross creeping bent grass. I heavily fertilize and water it to keep it nice and lush. It's the kind of grass that is used on golf course fairways and greens. I planted it 08/04/07.

Those bananas will fill in nicely. I like that washy palm. Are those railroad tracks near your house? Are those tracks used a lot? Great looking plants!

Yep those are tracks!! They are used about once a day, so its not a big deal. Kind of cool to have tracks close by in my opinion.
