vibrant color on a sunny day...they do like it warm.
It will come in and do about like a Tetrapanax or the
green variety of Manihot as Will mentioned...comes in, drops
some leaves,starts enjoying the warmth and puts out some weak
growth until the sun is to weak inside and it loses all its leaves and
then it starts growing again once the sun comes back...
The Arundo has pretty much stayed put where it is now for 10 years,
I guess the secret is not mulching it-lol
Yeah -the taller green Banana like plant there is Ensete Glaucum,it has had
a spectacular year in spite of the drought, really beautiful lush green leaves with
a snow covered(thus the name Chinese Snow Banana)trunk> Glaucum refers to the
coloration on the trunk I would imagine, really a great plant, next year(if we are all still here) I will have
3 of them in a row,E.Glaucum,E.Maurelii and E.Ventricosum that is in a pot because every time
I plant one and dig it up it flowers and dies!
