Pics of my "tropical" New York City yard. I am in a USDA gardening zone 7 and I use plants that are hardy to our winters, are easy to overwinter indoors, or use as annuals to get the tropical look this far north.
Please ask for my permission and give me credit if you use any of my pics!
Thanks for looking!

Late September Pics!
The yard is still going strong as we approach the first week of October. Here are some pics from this weekend!
Plumerias going very strong. The blooms are nice but the fragrance is really incredible especially at night.
The only Desert Rose I have ever kept alive has been going strong for 5 summers now!
I moved my Ti plants from the stairs because the wind kept blowing them down. I kind of like them here.
The tropicals are doing a good job keeping our electrical equipment hidden.
This orchid bloomed all winter long indoors and it's at it again!
A large shot of my orchid with my croton plant below and a lot of spanish moss.
Spanish moss really completes the tropical look.
Pool area with my Brugmansia to the left and a several different Colocasia and Alocasia.
My largest palm and a new purchase, a Yucca schottii! Excited to get this one in the ground.
