I am thinking I want to add a corner of plants in my screened in porch. Looking for recommendations. The screened in porch faces West. It is not glass, three sides screen. Here is a panoramic shot looking out the kitchen door. You can see the empty corner just clamoring out for some plants.

I think you could do almost any tropical over summer well into fall. Probably would not live all winter out there.

Are you wanting the plants that could be permanent residents, seasonal, or to be protected inside house or greenhouse during times of freeze?

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

Tiffany, ideally I could leave the plants out year round, but if I had to bring them in during the few times we get below freezing weather in Atlanta I could. Thanks for asking.

Awesome! In that case, just about any woody entity should be happy.
