People yearning for a blooming garden always try to do something creative and different with their gardens. Flower gardens and vegetable gardens are conventional choices for people with gardening skills and interests.
But how about getting slightly more creative with an exotic plant garden? It could be a combination gardenÂ with a perfect blend of exotic fruit and flower plant variety.
But first, one has to arrange the basic environment conducive to the growth of the plants one has chosen.
Plan the outer area
There are several exotic plants one might like to grow in a garden. But the basic requirement for all gardens remains the same – availability of space. Make sure there is abundant area available for growing a thriving exotic plant garden.
It is wiser to prepare an external fence by planting tougher varieties of exotic plants. Pick up from an assortment of palm trees, bamboos and banana trees.
There are a lot of diverse types when it comes to palm trees for example, Mexican Blue Palm or ‘Butia Bonnetii/Odorata.’
Similarly one can also add different varieties of Bamboo trees to add more diversity to the garden. For example, one can plant Foxtail Bamboo, which comes from places like Argentina and Chile.
The inner circle
The internal selection of plant could be more colorful and tender. One could try to plant something innovative and beautiful like a Japanese maple or something interesting like a Brazilian Spider Flower plant.
Add something colorful like a ‘Campsis Grandiflora’ or a Chinese Trumpet Creeper plant. One can also grow orchids of various types to add to the elegance and beauty of the exotic garden.
An array of selected ferns around the garden would add to the greenery. There are a lot of choices here as well. There are fern-types like ‘Cyathea Brownie,’ or a ‘Golden Tree Fern; which could enhance the garden’s beauty quotient if grown at the right location.
However, one has to remember that each exotic plant needs its own specific climatic and environmental conditions to bloom. Therefore, it is best to consult a professional nursery or gardener before purchasing plant seeds.
