The owner of this ocean front house had lived for years in Sri Lanka and Hawaii, and now back on the California coast wanted to turn the garden into a tropical hideaway. Red Banana, Black Taro, Ginger, and Kentia palms gave the flavor needed. The paving is buckskin Arizona flagstone. Additional plants used were Begonia 'Paul Hernandez', Vriesia and other bromeliads, Angels Trumpet, Philodendron 'Xanaduu' and Heliconia. A few succulents here and there were thrown in for an exotic look.
