The Q&A Archives: Tropicals & Shrubs

Question: I want to plant some lush tropicals and shrubs. I however do not like evergreen's at all. Can you suggest some plants that grow well in this region.

Answer: Sherry,

Tropicals by nature maintain their leaves through the year. Perhaps some perennials with tropical like foliage would be nice. Elephant ear, Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia gilliesii), perennial hibiscus, and Tropicana cannas are some options.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
