Quite colorful, this tropical garden is low maintenance and requires little attention to thrive. Most plants are very architectural and are laid out in a tapestry of striking colors, shapes and textures. We can admire with delight the graceful, evergreen rosettes of Dicksonia antarctica (Soft Tree Fern) and Cycas revoluta (Cycad) or the fan-shaped foliage of Trachycarpus fortunei (Chinese Windmill Palm).

Looking good all year-round, these striking plants compete for attention with the fiery red blossoms of Ipomoea x sloteri (Cardinal Climber), or the hot and vibrant blooms of Tropaeolum majus (Nasturtium) and Eschscholzia californica (California Poppy). A few blue Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile) cool down the atmosphere with their blue rounded clusters with star-shaped flowers numbering from 20 to more than 100.

Most of these plants are top performers, earning them the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
