Looking for plant suggestions

Looking for plant suggestions

So I have a spot near my pool underneath my royal palms that I'm looking to fill. It runs about 6' wide, 50' long on each side of my swimming pool (I have a 12" coping, but no pool deck). The one side is pretty much full Florida Sun (St. Petersburg, so a Zone 10a), the other side is between the pool and the house, so it gets a bit of shade. I had variegated shell gingers, but the side that got more sun always looked crispy. I'm looking to replace them with something lush, green (or variegated green and white) that can take Florida sun. Not keen on ground cover jasmine. Suggestions?
