Why Grow Tropical Plants?
As temperate gardeners, we have a leg up on our tropical cousins. We can combine the best of their gardens with the best of ours. We can grow a cool-season lilac, and then hide those unattractive legs with a potted Schefflera during the summer, allowing this popular houseplant to do doubleduty inside when temperatures drop.
It’s not so easy the other way around, as those who have tried to grow a lilac in Florida can tell you.
Used cleverly, tropical plants can:
Give you star power during the hot, often humid days of summer and early autumn.
Accentuate water features or accentuate wetter areas in the garden.
Add an unusual element to traditional plantings.
Create a themed tropical garden.
Create a sense of enclosure and privacy on decks and patios.
Thrill your taste buds with fresh, unusual flavors.
Create a lush indoor garden.
Allow you to experiment with exotic plants that, by virtue of their hardiness, won’t become an invasive threat in your garden.
The Summer Romance
Tropical plants you fall in love with and enjoy during the growing season, but kiss good-bye when summer ends.
I realized that it was okay to let an exciting tropical plant perish at the end of a long spring and summer on the deck; and that the cost was far below the incredible value it brought to my outside life.
It’s okay to allow a sumptuous summer combo light up your world for just a season. Pictured: Syngonium podophyllum ‘Holly.’
The Best Friend
Tropical plants that don’t need a greenhouse, living room, or pampering to overwinter in a dormant state.
I embraced those tropical plants that made things even easier by going fully dormant in a frost-free basement or garage.
Luxurious Canna foliage unfurls in the summer garden. In autumn, the rhizomes will be stored with little ceremony in a dark garage.
The Long-Term Commitment
Tropical plants that make your outdoor spaces shine in the summer, and then double as gorgeous houseplants over the winter months.
I easily committed to plants that functioned as excellent, sturdy houseplants over the winter, after they’d spent months beautifying the garden in summer.
The common houseplant devil’s ivy (Epipremnum aureus) creates a lush groundcover in summer.
The High-Maintenance Partner
Tropical plants that expect a lot. But we do it for them because we love them. For now.
I would find myself tempted by the occasional tropical plant that said “pamper me.” And lovesick and besotted, I would. Right until the moment I wouldn’t any longer.
A red pineapple is one of the more tempting High-Maintenance Partners. But how long will you cope with a spiny three-footer in your bathroom?
Don’t Get Carried Away
Here are ten suggestions for moving slowly and keeping your garden, your home, and your workload balanced:
1. Aim to use tropical plants as accents in your temperate garden, not as the framework of your garden.
2. To create a tropically themed garden, use more Mocktrops—plants that give the same look but are fully hardy in your climate.
3. Give yourself a strict budget for a few exciting Summer Romances each spring. Stay within it.
4. While sowing your temperate vegetables and flowers, sow a few Summer Romances, such as castor bean or papaya, to fill space with tropical vigor at a tiny cost.
5. use your container Summer Romances wisely, filling your pots with temperate annuals that accentuate the best of the tropical centerpiece.
6. Be completely honest about your indoor space restrictions. don’t crowd yourself.
7. Look for Long-Term Commitments that, first, will work well in your house; second, will work well on your patio.
8. Try out only one or two High-Maintenance Partners each autumn, so that you learn from the plant, but don’t have so many to care for that you lose the point of the exercise.
9. Situate all of your tropical plants near an easy water source or in naturally moist areas of your garden. Having to water by hand gets old quickly. if you live in a dry climate, strategically use containers to get the most impact from the fewest plants.
10. Grow more Friends with Benefits than pure Summer Romances. Friends with Benefits not only are ornamental but also provide food value.
