there are lots of interesting conifers and not a few of them IMHO look good in the "exotic" or "subtropical" type garden. for example many of the long-leaf type pines like the s.e. native pinus palustris, the s.w. p. englemanii, the western native p. coulteri the Mexican p. patula or montizumae, or p. canariense from the Atlantic islands. cryptomeria and cunninghamia (also Taiwania) from s.e. Asia (and the various bald cypresses, redwoods, and sequoias, from the this continent) look striking and of course the various aruacarias and podocarpus are an aesthetic cut above the usual blue spruce and Leyland cypress.
