    Default Calling all landscapers or plant knowing people ...

    Does anyone know what the name of this plant is ??? Any chance they would survive outside the tropical climate ?? I was going to ask someone on staff at CSA but forgot.... I think these would look really good around our pool area.

    Next time you go, do the nature tour!! It's so great and the tour leader is incredibly knowledgeable. They could answer any question you have about the plants there on site.

    Most nurseries and seed catalogs will provide you with a hardiness zone chart for the plants you are seeking. If you are purchasing tropical plants you need to know the tolerance in temperatures or be able to provide that similar environment.

    Keep in mind that Customs will not allow you to bring back plants from Jamaica.

    It looks like it is a Hwaiian Ti plant, the genus is Cordyline. It is good in Zones 10a, 10b and 11. We do use it here in Florida in our landscaping, but it will not hold up to prolonged cold weather. Hope this helps.

    The book Easy Weekend Gardening from the editors of Garden Gate magazine states it will grow in zones 10 to 12, not 9.

    Well, having built landscapes and gardens in zones 9 and 10 here in Florida, I can tell you the book is wrong. Keep in mind that zone 9 goes as far south as the southern end of Lake Okeechobee and as far north as Jacksonville.

    Its called a Red Sister Cordyline. They do well in FL but keep out of direct sunlight b.c the leaves start to change colors
