Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Tropical Garden Style
Finish the look. A patio overlooking a tropical landscape is a cool and shady retreat as well as a great transition from house to yard. Even if your patio isn't covered, keep the look going by adding potted plants filled with foliage and bright tropical flowers, wicker or bamboo furniture, bright or rich fabrics and some fresh tropical fruit.

Design tip: Finding similar plants for cooler climates may be easier than you think. There are hardy bananas (Musa sp.) available, and elephant's ear or taro (Colcasia esculenta) can be grown as an annual. Private Comment Add to ideabookby Chris Maler by Chris Maler Even when small, tropical foliage is distinctive. Sharp-edged and spikelike win out over soft and fluffy, and a common leaf description may often include the word "leathery." It's meant in the best way: Leaves are thick and resilient. Private Comment Add to ideabookby Adam Woodruff + Associates, Garden Artisans by Adam Woodruff + Associates, Garden Artisans A great option for gardeners anywhere is croton (Codiaeum variegatum). These brightly colored plants, more familiar as houseplants, will thrive outdoors when it's warm enough. Simply bury the pots in the ground (or hide them amongst other plants) and bring these tough beauties indoors when the weather cools. Design tip: This same trick also works well for other houseplants, such as coleus, dracaena and the always-popular ficus varieties. Private Comment Add to ideabookby Brooklyn Botanic Garden by Brooklyn Botanic Garden "Bright" and "exotic" define tropical flowers. From bird-of-paradise to hibiscus to heliconia, tropical flowers invite you to take a second look. One of the best tropicals for any garden is the canna, with its huge range of colorful flowers and leaves. Canna 'Pretoria' is both beautifully colored and readily available, but further exploration of the genus will open up a world of color for your garden. Design tip: Don't overlook bromeliads and orchids. Though you may not overwinter them outside, they provide long-lasting blooms and are happy to come inside when it's cold. Private Comment Add to ideabookby fenton roberts garden design by fenton roberts garden design Kniphofia 'Brimstone', in an unusual shade of yellow-green rather than bright red of the plant commonly known as 'red-hot poker', will stand out even against the bright green of typical tropical foliage. Design tip: Some common garden plants, such as impatiens and nasturtiums, are tropical plants at heart. You can find cold-tolerant varieties of hibiscus as well. Private Comment Add to ideabook Don't forget to add vines. Mandevilla is increasingly popular and available, but morning glories, jasmine and the black-eyed Susan vine (Thunbergia alata, which can be grown as an annual) are other great choices.
