After cutting the lawn in this area of the yard yesterday. I thought how much of a pain in the ash it is to go around the palm islands and color is needed here. I thought it would be a great idea to plant Crotons in drifts of a dozen or more of the same Crotons between these palm islands,this would put them out of the way of fallen fronds. I already have a dozen Gloriosum Superbum, easy and cheap to pickup Petras, Mammys and other more common ones. I would also leave planting areas for not so common Crotons. The area is basic dappled shade with a shot of sun as it sets to the west of the Lake. Frost is not a problem in this location of the garden. Your thoughts....?
