You get more rainfall than we do, so that would help the avocado trees, assuming they get minimal freezes and at least some heat overall. Some of the avocado growers in the SD area gave up during the drought and stopped irrigating them, because of the cost (avocados use quite a bit of water), so in the middle of the biggest avocado growing area (north of Escondido), one can see scattered dead groves.
No surprise with the Dracaena (yep--some varieties have striped leaves). Many Dracaena are native at higher elevations, which would allow them to tolerate cool weather.
