Guide to Using Outdoor Plants to Spruce up Your Patio

outdoor plantsMiami residents are lucky enough to be able to enjoy outdoor living spaces all year. It’s not surprising that a covered outdoor area such as a lanai is as popular in South Florida as it is in Hawaii. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a condo or apartment, a town house, or a single family home. There are many reasons to spruce up your outdoor living space with potted plants. Aside from transforming an ordinary patio, deck or balcony into a fun-filled entertaining area, the right green and flowering plants wil turn any outdoor space into a delightful oasis that lets you escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Unusual Container Plant Combinations

Our Double Orchid Plant with Bromeliads is definitely unique. The combination of bromeliads and orchids oozes tropical exoticism. The square black container is both sophisticated and subdued, ensuring that nothing detracts from the sensation of seeing these two different plants combined in one planter. This planter is ideal for any size table a coffee table, or an outdoor console table behind a sofa. Place it in a spot where both plants get plenty of filtered light.

Double Orchid Plant with Bromeliads

South Florida is the ideal place for container-grown tropical gardens, and our European Blooming Basket captures that and more by combining some of the most spectacular and unusual foliage and blooming plants. We include a gorgeous Croton with variegated leaves that reveal hints of cream and yellow veins, tinges of red and different shades of green. We also include an Anthurium, with shiny dark green leaves and very unusual-looking red flowers. Another show-stopper is an unusual Elephant Ear variety with shiny dark green leaves and very prominent cream-colored veins. We also include other plants.

European Blooming Basket

These plants are all ideally suited to the warm and humid Miami weather. When they outgrow the basket we plant them in (which they will do,) you can either transplant them into a large patio pot so you can continue to enjoy them on your patio or balcony, or put them in the ground in your front or back yard. Because these plants are sensitive to the amount and intensity of light they receive, they’re ideal for growing in containers – especially containers that are easy to move from place to place.
