This #banana tree has been here for many years, but I’ve cut it all the way back a few times. Banana trees are just so common in #Florida! When this gets big, it shades my already too-shady yard a bit much, so it gets cut. But being here on #gardentags makes me want to let it grow, so we’ll see! 😍 #9a

@cyndi It hasn’t ever produced fruit, but that may be because I keep cutting it! I’m excited to see what happens when I let it grow. I’ve never even cared for it, really. They grow so easily. I wonder what will happen when I give it some love and nutrients! 😍

Thank you @cyndi It seems so obvious now, but yes, a tropical bed is exactly what I need right there! I planted a lot before I understood a lot, and this whole area needs to be changed anyway.

@cyndi For the longest time, I really didn’t like local plants. I wanted to create some English sort of garden here in Florida! But I’ve grown to absolutely LOVE native plants and it’s so much more fun to garden with plants that can live, and actually thrive, in our harsh summers!
