Tropicals

Even though we live far north of their native climates, tropical plants have been used in New England gardens for generations due to their exotic appearance, luxurious flowers, and stunning colors. Every year we offer a wide selection of tropical plants to brighten up your outdoor living spaces, from flowering hibiscus to climbing mandevilla to fragrant gardenias. In 2019 we expanded our offering of tropicals to include unusual items such as elegant purple ruellia and vibrant yellow crossandra. Our selection changes rapidly and varies from year to year, so plase call for availability or stop by to see what new surprises we have in store. 

Tropicals take particular environmental conditions to thrive. They like a warm, humid environment, plenty of fertilizer, and as much sunlight as you can give them. Be sure to move these beauties indoors before the nighttime temperatures go below 50 degrees!
