Everything is thriving despite the dry weather. I guess you have been really busy watering this summer. The bananas are so full and healthy. Glad to see the tree ferns so happy too. Love the waggie's trunk, it looks like my "old man palm"! I spotted your princeps in the background (I think). If it is, it looks happy too, and so nice and silvery.
Great variety of scheffleras. I am trying S. delavayi down here this winter in a protected spot with some pothos vines. I have seen large pothos vines around town, but no Scheffleras, so we'll see how it handles north Florida winters!
The hibiscus look great too. Are you giving them extra water also? I know they love water, but I figure since some are native, maybe they can handle the drought.
Thanks for sharing and reposting. I know how hard it is to post photos on here, but I really enjoyed them!
