Today we’re headed to Florida to visit Linda Robert’s subtropical garden.
My mom and I started working on what we call “the jungle garden” 17 years ago. It was just mud and pine trees when we started. She lived in the casita (guest house) to our “hacienda.” And in that time it has been knocked down by eight different hurricanes. Nature is an amazing resilient teacher.
I have an affinity for philodendrons, which climb many of our trees; I have over a dozen different varieties. I also have a love for anthuriums and alocasia.
