A "leafy" day;
The pretty new leaf of a Banana. It is a cross between a Ladies finger banana and a Cavendish. It makes a small tree, produces many Banana hands, very sweet and tasty, and it is easy to harvest the Bananas.
Part of the huge fronds of the giant King fern.
Happy Plant, Dracaena, the sun enhances the golden varigation.
Coleus, Solenostemon, looks pretty with its " lime coloured crochet" around the burgundy leaves.
Philodendron selloum; has very attractive, huge leaves up to 90 cm.
Elkhorn fern, Microsorum punctatum cristatum, growing on the trunk of a native Bangalow Palm.
