Landscaping Around A Pool

We are getting ready to put a pool in. We live in Waco, TX. We are in Central Texas. I like the tropical look.

We have nothing, I mean nothing, in our back yard at all. We just bought this new house less than a year ago.

I would like some tall tropical trees/plants; and, of course, other plants/flowers to add. Some color would be nice, too.

Thanks, Brenda
