That's the way I interpreted it too..tropical LOOKING plants. My first post clearly referred to this
We all have different views on bamboos but it is very, very silly to plant any of them. They are destructive. A grower of bamboos was featured on GW a while back amd even he admitted defeat with some of them. As a naive gardener a few years back I planted what I comsidered to be well-behaved varieties. Within 2 years they were creeping underground and popping up several feet away. I had a lot of digging over a wide area to finally eradicate them.
On the tropical theme, bamboos are not tropical but look it!!
