The Q&A Archives: tropical foliage outdoors

Question: can I put tropical foliage plants on my patio in full sun this summer? The tag from HD just says tropical foliage and recommends medium sun

Answer: The answer really depends upon the specific plants you are growing; some tolerate full sun and some do not. To be on the safe side, give your new plants morning sun and afternoon shade for now. Then try to find out specifically what the plant names are and submit another question through the Home Depot website. Armed with the plant's name we can advise whether or not they will take full summer sun.
