Tropical Landscaping Plants
Tropical landscaping plants make attractive additions to any yard. Most tropical landscaping plants can be used for planter boxes, hedges or specimen plants. Tropical landscaping plants such as Ixora, hibiscus, hydrangea, oleander and gardenia all grow well in the tropics. Roses bloom year round. Azaleas and rhododendron generally do better in subtropical regions, but certain varieties grow well in tropical regions. Hollies, Japanese pittosporum, privet and junipers are popular evergreen shrubs and are grown as hedges. Clematis, bougainvillea, passionflower, honeysuckle, trumpet creeper, wisteria and coral vine flower profusely in the tropics, and many kinds of ivy provide interesting foliage.
