The world of exotic and tropical plants, ranging from colorful foliage plants to fragrant flowering plants, will be covered in this course, with concentration on identification, culture, growth patterns, and management in the interior and exterior landscape. Appropriate overwintering locations will also be discussed. The use of these plants provides the opportunity to add color, texture, movement, and seasonal excitement to interiors throughout the year and to containers and garden beds in the warm season for home, garden, institutional, or commercial applications.
