The Q&A Archives: tropical plantings

Question: How about some suggested plantings for my tropical themed backyard in the zipcode of 95219

Answer: How about adding banana tree, elephant ears, dwarf citrus, bouganvillea, macadamia, jacaranda, hibiscus, and hardy palms. Ginger is tropical looking as are the big, colorful leaves of caladium. Some of these plants may need frost protection if the weather threatens to get cold, but most will survive without too much winter damage. Enjoy!
