You will find tropicals, annuals, and perennials not found at the big box stores. They add a sense of the lush tropics to your garden. For many years the Scott Arboretum has showcased interesting tropicals and annuals in containers and various gardens around the campus from May to November.

Tropical plants such as Alocasia, Colocasia, and Xanthosoma (elephant ears), CannaEnsete, Musa, Musella (bananas), and bromeliads create a stunning, lush effect that reminds you of the tropics.
