Growing Recommendations for Zone 10b

I am looking for suggestions for plants for my garden in Florida. I do not reside there and need something that requires little care and attention, such as watering, pruning, etc.

If you plant native things you'll have plants that require less care. Look around the area. In zone 10 you can grow almost anything. You should try living in zone 4. Everything freezes. (04/26/2009)

Since you do not reside here, invest in colorful low maintenance perennials. Here's a few suggestions:
Trees- Dogwood and Crape Myrtle. Shrubs - Azalea, Gardenia, Hardy Hibiscus, Hydrangea, Bridal Wreath Spirea, and Camellia. Plants and Bulbs - Day Lily, Hosta, Iris, Dwarf Canna, Plumbago and Bush Jasmine. Avoid plants with thorns. Avoid vines such as Wisteria and Trumpet vine that will grow out of control during your absence.

If you have any shady areas Calladiums grow excellently here as do ferns, there are many varieties and some with neat colors. Bromelliads do well here, as well. Another plant I love and think does really well here is Shrimp plant and it comes in a few different colors. African Iris, Agapanthus, and Ficus do very well, too. (04/27/2009)
