Though concentrating on palms, in
keeping with the stated goals of diversity and creation
of suitable habitat, plus natural beauty, many other plants are being
aggressively placed.  Of particular interest are native
species with maximum habitat potential. 

Examples of these include cecropia,
passiflora, wild papaya, calabash, and piper.  In addition, I have noted,
though not yet identified, other plants which are eagerly sought out by
hummingbirds and butterflies.  Plantings of these
are being intensified.

For beauty, value, and habitat, another area of focus is trees.  
Selections are based on bloom, specialty hardwood
value, and/or their emergent stature 
- forest giants such as tubroos, ficus, and ceiba.
Please refer to the
Plant List below for details.
