I've just created a Japanese inspired garden using variety of Cycad plants.
By using multiple varieties and levels of maturity, I've achieved a wonderful garden full of texture and interest.
Just my thoughts.

I had a really difficult spot under a big fig tree. With extreme conditions including dense shade most of the day, hot west sun in the afternoon and dry conditions due to the large root system of the fig. But on top of all that we live an area that floods so at times it is also under water for up to a week. It was hard to mow the grass under the tree because of the roots of the tree. So I planted a garden of cycads, bromeliads, mondo grass, dietes & agapanthas. It looks great and everything is thriving.
