Tropical Landscaping
for South Florida

Tropical landscaping is a relaxed style with exotic plants that make you feel like you're on vacation - in a lush rainforest or by a sun-drenched beach.

Plants with a "jungle look" can create an extraordinary home landscape...with leaves of unusual shapes and colors and a sprinkling of bright flowers.

The collections of plants featured here can be customized to fit your style and your space by adding, subtracting, or substituting plants.
