Who says your tropical plants have to have blooms? There are many foliage plants that offer graphic shapes and textures, and even color to make your patio feel like a resort! Here are our favorites. CORDYLINE: Don’t have enough sun for flowering tropicals? No problem! Cordyline fruticosa, also known as the Hawaiian Ti plant, offers incredible color and texture with its unique foliage. As an indoor plant, cordyline prefers bright, indirect light. Outdoors, the hot summer sun can fade the leaves so partial sun is best. With varieties like ‘Kiwi’, ‘Hot Pepper’, ‘Bolero’, ‘Dark Wine’, ‘Red Dragon’, ‘Tropical Red’, and ‘Exotica’, you will want more than one! ALOCASIA : One of our favorites to add drama to any garden! Alocasia, also known as elephant ears, is a summer favorite. The enormous sculptural leaves look beautiful in a container or looming over a bed of flowers. Alocasia prefers partial shade and looks beautiful with other shade annuals like begonias, impatiens and ferns. Look out for our different varieties this year boasting different color and leaf textures – ‘Calidora’, ‘California’, ‘Dark Star’, ‘Regal Shields’ and more! BANANA PLANT: Unfortunately, we don’t live in a climate warm enough to grow bananas but we can enjoy their beautiful leaves for the summer! Banana plants look stunning in a brightly colored container garden, especially when planted with colorful tropicals or blooming annuals. Plant in full sun, water consistently and enjoy!
