Crowded Confederates and Faux-meliads

Here we have a couple of peculiar landscape treatments that caught my eye.

Confederate Jasmine is an excellent landscape plant and the variegated version grows a little slower than the green…but it is still a vine that will naturally grow ten to twelve feet high and wide. This landscaper decided to plant ten plants where one would grow too large.

Next, these neon yellow props-from-“Avatar” made me slow down. They are so uniformly unnatural, yet they match the silk plants in the neighboring pots. I understand the goal of property managers to cut costs and lower maintenance but I’m not sure that glowing, plastic vegetation suggests luxury.

Pretty plastic “plants”.
