Tropical Plants for Tropical Flair

Home » Blog » Spring » Tropical Plants for Tropical Flair

Around your deck, on the porch, or incorporated into your landscape, Tropical Plants add a fabulous island flavor to their surroundings.  The Evergreen of Johnson Greenhouses are ready to help bring the tropics to YOUR home and make you feel as though you’re on vacation all summer long!

Tropicals should be fertilized with a water soluble 20-20-20 solution every 10-14 days to promote growth, because if they aren’t growing, they won’t bloom!!! Also, water in morning hours to avoid fungal disease.  Here are some of our favorite tropical plants, all available here at the famous Evergreen of Johnson City Greenhouses:
