|Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii' growing in a pot on the terrace|
In the pots in front of the banana is an Ochagavia, which is a hardy bromeliad I got from Sean Hogan, and an Agave geminiflora which I have grown from a small plant to the size you see there. This is a most unagave -like agave which is one of my favorites. It is probably not hardy for us, so I have taken it inside every winter I have had it. Behind the banana is Aralia elata 'Aureomarginata', one of my favorite small trees. I am going to have to find a source for this, because I intend to plant one at my new garden.
