A tiny slice of jungle nestled within a small triangular plot. To the front of the house are two beds planted with nectar-secreting plants and in a larger bed, a sea of Stipa tenuissima studded with perennials. To the rear, a small patio is home to some bonsai and a collection of potted terrestrial ferns including rare blechnum species and succulents. A serpentine path meanders through dense planting of palms, bamboos and tree ferns. Of particular note are hardy and tender bromeliads and aroids such as arisaema and colocasia. Flower highlights are provided by lilies (species and cultivars), cannas and gingers.
