    Hello Everyone. My new garden border is in full sun for 10 hours per day (when there is sun) I already have a Musa Basjoo, Cannas, Gingers, Tetrapanax, Ensette, and melianthus major. Is there any other plants I can get to add to the border. I do like big leaves and my plan is to create a canopy. The garden drains well, because it is on a slight slope. I am not a fan of spikey/arid plants.

    Some sun tolerant plants I’d recommend for big leaves in your garden are:

    – Paulownia tomentosa

    – Rheum palmated

    – Gunnera manicata/cryptica

    – Echiums

    – Muschia

    – Darmera peltata

    I’d love to see what interesting plants everyone else can add to this list?!
