Our Saw Palmetto has been at the base of the pine tree for the 27 years we have lived here. Bob hates it, I love it. Slow growing but BIG and slowly takes over. I have taken zillions of photos of it and what grows in and around it. On Wikipedia I found they can live to be 500 to 700 years old. Wow.
The orange hibiscus reaches out into the saw like fronds and thrives as does the bright green fern. Below is the green fern as it looks during our drought. The hibiscus and Saw Palmetto are drought resistant.
