The Topic Is Tropics
Yes, yes, I know there is a tropical forum, but the folks there seem to be from Texas (except for the person in Toronto who is in zone 7--how does THAT work, I wonder?).
I got this brainstorm of making a little tropical area around my patio---elephant's ear, caladiums, cannas. The question is--will they have enough time in our climate to do their thing before winter sets in? How quickly do those bulbs root and grow? Anyone have any success with these or like tropicals?
