Cold Hardy Tropicals

The Monsoonal Tropics have a very wet season followed by a very dry season. Tropical plants growing in this region of the world have adapted to this dry season by going dormant. This dormancy can be triggered by any stress including cold weather. This gives them hardiness to at least zone 8. They do require a well drained soil while dormant with plenty of mulch. One of the largest groups of dormant tropicals are the gingers. They are a glorious group of plants that most folks would never imagine could grow in a temperate climate. They possess beautiful tropical foliage but their real wonder are the spectacular inflorescences (blooms). Some varieties bloom in the spring but most bloom from late spring until the first frost of fall. We have collected the largest group of these plants in the U.S. We can help you find the special addition to your garden that brings you the same joy we feel every time we walk our nursery grounds.
