Welcome to Phoenix Tropicals.
This gardening site is dedicated to sharing information I have gained over the years from personal experience, lots of reading, and from fellow enthusiasts. The focus here is to provide regional information on a few select varieties that are of particular interest. Mostly importantly, to answer the question "Will that plant actually survive and produce here?". Often the answer to that question is surprisingly "Yes". Although sometimes the answer is that your plant has a better chance of surviving a trip through a wood chipper.
This site is expected to continue to grow over time and may not initially contain information on every plant listed in the heading. Links to other sites are generously provided in the footer of many of the pages to give you a chance to expand your knowledge elsewhere.
