Home > Subtropicals
There's always room for more botanical intrigue. These subtropical plants are perfect for those who suffer from zonal denial. On the West Coast many of these plants will be hardy outdoors planted in protected situations. Elsewhere in Canada use subtropicals as container specimens for focal points in the summer garden. In winter put them in a protected location or bring them in as houseplants.
