I have vacant lot in Sandy Central Florida I want to clear and do some land grading on. My plan is elevate the center back by digging some slopped graded ditches. I'm looking for plants and trees that can do well in central florida sandy soil and don't mind being in a ditch that might take a lot of water every so often. Ideally i want something like a Yucca Aloifolia or Yucca Brightedge which I've seen in the area and when in clusters it's seems like pretty good perimeter security.
How will these perform and how can i get them to propagate? Anything else out there that might do well? Note the sandy soil is very porous and does not hold water for long.
