Today we’re visiting Joe Seamone’s garden. Joe gardens in southern Delaware, about 10 miles inland, in USDA Hardiness Zone 7b.

These tropical-looking plants have dramatic foliage and beautiful, often fragrant, flowers in late summer. They’re a great way to bring a tropical flair to the garden.

This hibiscus can grow into a large shrub or small tree in warm climates but will freeze to the ground each winter in the colder end of its range.

, SEO, Wordpress Support & Insurance, Mortgage, Loans, Legal, Etc BlogsFatsia japonica ‘Variegata’ (Zones 7–10) forms a small shrub with big, dramatic leaves and in the fall puts up these big clusters of small, white flowers. This is a great shrub for shaded conditions in warm climates and can also actually be grown as a houseplant in colder climes.
