A Garden for the Senses
It is possible to create a garden that evokes the tropics, even here in the Southern California. The trick is to work with plants that have the essence of tropical gardens but without necessarily requiring an abundance of water. In the case of this garden, we worked with exotic colored Cannas, Lush Palms, and delicate Chinese Lanterns. We even managed to tuck in some bromeliads and ferns.
