Tropical Style in Sacramento

Posted by Green Acres Nursery & Supply on May 17, 2017 3:29:36 PM

Do you long for a lush, tropical getaway here in the Sacramento valley? There are an abundance of tropical-looking plants which will thrive in our Mediterranean climate.** 

Create an Oasis

The problem that most tropical plants face in Sacramento is frost – they generally can't handle cold winters.

Work around this by planting an "oasis" of lush frost-sensitive plants (indicated with an asterisk below) on your patio or porch, where you can appreciate their beauty in the summer and easily provide frost protection in the winter months.

The outer-reaches of your landscape can be filled with plants that have a beautiful island feel, but hold up well in cold weather.
