You can use decorative features such as wind chimes and seating with a tropical design to achieve an overall tropical feel with just a few selected Plumeria.
If you love color, you will enjoy the way tropical shades grab attention and add happiness to your home. Plumeria plants and other tropical flowers must be praised for their color, especially if your other plants are more mundane. You cannot go wrong with plumeria if intense color is what you are looking for, and there are some plumeria that have multiple colors on every petal. Expect your plumeria to stand out since they have an exotic look that grabs attention.
Tropical Selections Look Spectacular Together
The fragrant, vibrantly colored plants of a tropical garden are usually combined together in groups. Imagine strolling through a backyard lined with exotic plants in every imaginable color blending together around your feet. A large garden pot filled with plumeria plants in bright colors will make a more tropical impression than a few ferns planted on the side of your flowerbed.
Are you familiar with the flowers that are native to your climate? Bring them into your sunny border along with your plumeria plants, ferns, and other tropical flowers. You may be shocked how many plants grow naturally in your zone while still delivering the look of a tropical flower.
Make sure to consider the water needs of all flowers or foliage plants as you determine which selections should be placed together in a bed or pot. Tropical plants will require a lot of water to survive, but plants that grow well in your local climate may demand less water. You can still combine these plant selections by filling your bed with tropical flowers and placing your native plants in large pots placed close by, or in reverse order.
Always Try Again
Your plumeria plants and other tropical foliage and flowers may cause you problems, but never assume you cannot do it. It is often tricky to raise a tropical flower in a non-tropical growing environment. You can have success growing plumeria plants regardless of your zone or geographical location, but you may battle with diseases or dehydration if the planting soil is inadequate or water is not supplied appropriately. For instance, many gardeners must overcome disease caused by poor soil or may lose plants because they do not receive sufficient water to fully mature.
Once you decide what tropical plants you may include in your new garden, determine the soil requirements for each plant. This web site has a nice plant care section to help you caring for Plumeria. Double check that the soil is well hydrated and of the right alkalinity before planting cuttings or seeds for tropical features. Since tropical plants demand a lot of water, grow them near a water fountain, pond, or other garden water feature. If you do not have a water feature, consider burying a watering system in the bed before you plant your tropical features.
With some study and proper care, you can create a brilliant tropical garden even in your climate. Plumeria plants are the simplest way to add that tropical vibe you dream of creating.
