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!
