video Tropical Flowering and Foliage Plants in Chicago
When it comes to growing tropical plants some gardeners will tell you that these plants cannot be grown in temperate climates. Fortunately, this is not true. This video shows that tropical plants can be grown successfully in temperate climates.

In temperate climates, gardeners are able to grow beautiful tropical flowering and foliage plants in pots. During the warmer months tropical plants can be grown successfully outdoors.

During the colder months some plants, like Begonia, Caladium and Canna can be allowed to go dormant. Others like Bougainvillea, Croton, Gardenia, Hibiscus, Jasmine and Plumeria, to name a few, can be grown successfully indoors if proper growing conditions are provided.
