1. ‘Tea Cup’ elephant’s ear (Colocasia esculenta* ‘Tea Cup’, Zones 8–11)2. King Tut® papyrus (Cyperus papyrus ‘King Tut’, Zone 11)3.

Bellfire® begonia (Begonia boliviensis Bellfire®, Zones 10–11)5. ‘Sweet Caroline Light Green’ sweet potato vine (Ipomoea batatas ‘Sweet Caroline Light Green’, Zone 11)6.
