We love tropical plants any time of year! Outdoors in summer, they'll lend their tropical vibe to your patios, balconies, decks and gardens.  All year round, they'll brighten your home, clean the air, and of course star in your Instagram #shelfies

Patio Tropicals

Incorporating tropicals into your patio planters and beds adds instant appeal with size and colour.

Use bigger tropicals as your thriller or smaller ones as your filler in any container.

Try them throughout your flower beds to add height or to add a unique punch of colour and texture.

Plants such as palms, snake plants, or any type of standard provide great height. Plants like crotons, hibiscus, bromeliads, provide great colour.

Tropicals make great additions to our patios, front entrances, and anywhere else because they have a unique look in our area and are full of colour. They can be kept year-round by bringing them indoors for the winter so you can continue to enjoy their beauty. Click here for some helpful tips!

Citrus/Figs

Grow your own citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, limes) and figs in your yard! These tropicals are great on sunny patios or yards, and fun for the whole family to observe as they grow and to harvest when they're ripe.
