Tropicals (or Tropical wanna-be's) in Zone 6
Hi there. I am in Zone 6 in MA. This summer, I completely renovated most of my property with a backhoe, etc. - the whole 9 yards. With the exception of natural growth perimeter shrubs, trees and grapevine, I have a blank slate to work with. I have some shrubs, perrenials and trees here and there, but most can be moved if need be. I want to crete a series of garden rooms, some with thems. I have been working on the "bones", creating beds, etc. One area I would truly love to have is a "tropical" room. Given that I really can't have true tropicals that are hardy enough (yes, I know I can overwinter them, but I can only do that on a very limited basis), I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions. I know there is at least one palm that will survive here. I am open to any and all suggestions. Thanks! Peace and blessings.
