Small Backyard Paradise in CA
I am slowly creating a "tropical" theme to my backyard. I just added two orange birds of paradise plants, 6 solar tiki torches and 10 fast spreading "Supertunia's" from ProvenWinners.com
I am looking for ideas on what types of plants I can add to my landscape to give it the tropical look. I will soon be adding some Polynesian wood decor.
1 of 3: This is my backyard in it's current state as of July 2011. As you can see, I planted Bubble Gum Supertunia's, added solar tiki torches and two orange birds of paradise plants. My next plan is to add some larger tropical plants such as banana plant or something similar.
2 of 3: This was my backyard in summer of 2010 before I planted petunia's, birds of paradise and added the solar tiki torches. For greening, I apply Ammonium Sulfate granules with my hand seed spreader.
