Temperennials

Included in this category are sub-tropical and tropical plants. Because of their foliage texture and colour, when incorporated into garden beds or containers they add an exotic look and make for an interesting conversation piece. These plants are not cold hardy and are usually treated as annuals, and most can be overwintered indoors.
