If it doesn't, someone let me know, and I'll move it to the gallery.

I just love this purple fountain grass - first came accross it in the Cairns area earlier this year, and HAD to have some. Its seeds are sterile, so no weed potential! :D

This is the same area as my other tropical pic, but we've redone it in the last few days.

It sure does look nice Pam, be sure to leave it where it is! That grass is like a foxtail and makes a lovely contrast to the other plants. What is the plant on the top right of the photo?

I'm not sure which one you mean - the variegated spikey one?

Ah, you meant THAT 'right'! Gotcha!

A Bromeliad - neoregelia, well past its best, but I am hoping its pups will root to the tree. It's a poinciana that has been severely hacked, and my idea in putting the brom there was to hide the rotted stump of the branch.
