I would like to find out which Tropical plants grow in my area the best? Very HOT summers and cold winter in EL Dorado Hills. Landscaping backyard, and full sun between 1:00pm-5:00pm. Lots of Oaks for filter sun and shade.

In your gardening region you can grow Ensete or Musa (banana), palms, Abutilon (flowering maple), Fatsia japonica, Ginger Lily, Bird of Paradise, Calla, Caladium, and Melanthus (honey bush), to name a few. For more ideas, check out a copy of Sunset Western Garden Book at your local library. You'll find dozens of possibilities for your garden. Enjoy!
