  Tropical Kentucky Landscape
From: Brian Williams <pugturd at alltel.net> on 2006.12.11 at 15:40:12(14919)
Thought I would share some photos of this years landscape. Hard to see
many aroids with all the cannas and bananas. Each year I dig up tons of
tropicals and take them inside our greenhouses, some forms I can mulch
up for winter. Each year the nursery looks better and my landscape areas
get larger. I use a lot of new hybrids of cannas, alocasia and colocasia
that I have been breeding in the landscape. It is not only used for
display but also for my breeding and propagating each year.

This link should take you to the photos.

Wow, Brian, that's amazing! You definitely have the lush tropical
look achieved. Thanks for sharing those with us.

I am curious, is that tall alocasia "coffee cups" or "big dipper"
which appears in your second and fifth photos?

Tom that is Colocasia Coffee cups. I grew it to around 8 feet tall this
season. I have yet to see a flower on it maybe next season.

That's encouraging, Brian, since I have been growing one of these
very same plants from you. It's only three feet tall at this point,
but I'm looking forward to it picking up some height in the coming
months. Among the alocasias and colocasias I have planted out, it is
one of the faster growers and does night mind the colder evenings of
late.
