I recently bought a new house which has an oasis pool in the backyard. (the house was empty for a while and many of the plants died because of a lack of watering). I need ideas for what types of plants I should plant around the pool to give it a sort of "jungle look"
I live in Atlanta,GA which doesn't go far below below freezing (if it ever does), and gets rather hot in the summer. Most of the areas that need to be planted are in the shade, although there are some that have some shade as well as some direct sunlight. Some of the plants that are currently planted are ferns and cast iron plants.
I was thinking of possibly planting some bamboo, but I've heard that it is considered a "pest" in Georgia and will spread like crazy....Is this true?
I also wanted to plant some palms, are there any types that can survive in part sun?
All suggestions and advice is welcome! Thanks in advance for your tips
