Go tropical! With all the recent rains, heat and humidity, tropical plants can bring warm season colors (red, orange, yellow) and beautiful foliage into your plantings or containers.
Many tropicals planted will be annuals due to low winter temperatures. However, tropicals planted in moveable containers can be brought into your garage or greenhouse during freezing temperatures.
Here are just a few tropical plant suggestions to get you started:
Bougainvillea Bird of Paradise
Coral Vine Canna
Mandevilla Elephant Ears
Wandering Jew Hibiscus
All of these listed above are usually hardy to 32 degrees.
