Exotic Backyard Plants

The Chronicle posted a slideshow today about exotic backyard plants, featuring dragonfruit. I thought the selection of plants was sorely lacking. Below are some photos from a Facebook album I made a while back spotlighting my mom’s backyard oasis. Looks like it’s straight out of Kerala, India, right? Or as close as you can get from a backyard in Houston, Texas.

What are your favorite “exotic” plants? On that note, does anyone else feel uncomfortable using the word exotic? It makes things sound sensational or abnormal.
