Outdoor Tropical Plants: Part 1

Outdoor Tropical Plants: Part 1

Join Kirsten Segler from The Greenery and discover some fun tropical plants! All of these Colocasia and Canna Lily tropicals feature large leaves and come in a variety of colours. These plants tend to do best in half day sun, half day shade. Use shade cloth over the plants to create the perfect light filter!

Part 1 of the series focuses on the tropical plants we’ve grown in our water feature. If you plan to plant these in the water as well, please be aware that they will grow much larger than if you plant them in the ground or in a pot!

Featured Tropical Plants:

– Colocasia “Fontanesii”
– Canna Lily “Pretoria” (Similar to Canna Lily “Tropicanna Gold”)
– Canna Lily “Durban” (Similar to Canna Lily “Tropicanna”)
– Colocasia “Diamond Head”
– Colocasia “Elena”
– Colocasia “Illustris”
– Canna Lily “Australia”

    Beautiful plants

    Canna lilies and elephant ears can take a good amount of frost, as they are grow as perennials up to southern Missouri. I’m in southern Louisiana where they are invasive and grow on bayou and lake banks. They can be grown in zones 6-10 as perennials. My grandmother who is in St Louis has cannas and colocasias and in October she cuts them to the ground and puts about and inch of mulch on top of them, and in May they come back up again. I’m in zone 9a and they die to the ground in mid December and we don’t do anything to winterize them. They typically come back up in March.

    Thank you for this video ❤️
    Very informative 👍👍👍

    Ufff cada corte duele. Je je gracias por el video

  10. Allison Hunter on August 25, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    I’m in south FL, and wanting to add a large statement plant to my garden. I see 4-ft high alocasias at the garden center– can I put one in a containerr as long as it gets sufficient moisture?

  11. Yanping Huang on August 25, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    thank you for sharing.

  12. tomo kitty on August 25, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    I know I’m in the minority, but I find it cruel and really horrible to treat wonderful tropical plants as annuals. Now that orchids and so many other exquisite plants are so inexpensive, this trend has caught on.
    I can remember my grandmother cherishing her geraniums and taking them in each year for winter and I do the same. How sad that people just throw away gorgeous plants.

  13. ghayath2011 on August 25, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    beautiful

  14. Akash krishna on August 25, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    most plants u showed in this video are very common here in south india

  15. The Greenery Garden Centre on August 25, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Thank you!

  16. Gardening in the Northeast on August 25, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    I pull up my cannas every fall before the first freeze and wrap the rhizome in newspapers and package them up in a cardboard box. I put them in my basement. they keep well as long as you put them away dry. plant again in spring. very easy to maintain. You don’t need to let them die.

  17. Phsyco Yella on August 25, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    This is the only video that I’ve found saying the these elephant ears can be grown in just plain water. Thank God when my plant grows huge I want it in living the room for show. Am I supposed to put some type of fertilizer in the water ? Someone please tell me what to do, I want. My plants to thrive.

  18. Harpo Morris on August 25, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Great episode, very informative but the music is distracting and irritating!

  19. RenLovets Channel on August 25, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    wow love your video 🤩

  20. Paolo Mh on August 25, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Hi from UK zone 9. Got canna Tropicana and gold plugs in pots still about 4-inch height (may 9), can’t do much about the sun but how often should I water them? Thank you.

  21. Lance on August 25, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Ha! I live in Durban, South Africa! And there is a Pretoria here too. I wonder if the plant names derive from the same origin?

  22. Ping Wong on August 25, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    When you plant them in water, what kind of planting media do you use?

  23. Alyssa McConnaughey on August 25, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    cringed everytime he chopped a plant 😖

  24. CC CC on August 25, 2021 at 10:40 pm

  25. msk raja on August 25, 2021 at 10:40 pm

  28. Nature Degree on August 25, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Thanks for excellent presentation Friend

  29. Marilyn Torena on August 25, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    No need to cut.. So long time to wait the leaves grow..

  30. Warren Barrett on August 25, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    please take away his shears!!! 🙂

  31. Kwong Ee Ting on August 25, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Thanks.

  32. Mana Lani on August 25, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    please no need to cut to show…otherwise love your video

  33. The Barefooted Gardener on August 25, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    That’s a huge waste to just treat them as annuals; everyone who buys Cannas and Elephant Ears should know how to make them go dormant or keep them as house plants.

  34. Anita K on August 25, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Very beautiful Tropical plants

  35. B K on August 25, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Hi it’s 3/22/18 in Michigan can I start the cannas inside now or is it to early?

  36. Rolf De Jong on August 25, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I watched this video 3 times. Have got my self an alocasia and will order canna lillies soon for the pond.

  37. Tracy Amor on August 25, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Love this. Saw this many moons ago. Watching again 😍💚

  38. Ohiogardengoddess 1984 on August 25, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    People complaining that he’s cutting the plants…..he said at the beginning if the video frost was coming that night and they are getting ready to put all these plants away so they’re gonna get chopped anyway

  39. dr. Ardi Pramono on August 25, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Very greeny and exotic garden

  40. kak kaktus on August 25, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Dont cut it🥶

  41. Odalys Kopp on August 25, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    En serio? Es necesario cortar las hojas y tallos de estas maravillosas plantas solo para el vídeo? Me duele …aunque agradezco la explicación

  42. Neti S Panca Dewi on August 25, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Cana lili di tempat saya namanya tumbuhan ganyong wulung..waktu th 1982 di halaman rumah banyak sekali

  43. Teresa Bakameyer Guthrie on August 25, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    love the video but what month do you plant those giant elafentear

  44. Apeto on August 25, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I fell so sad when you cut your plant I think it’s not necessary to do that.. Like your video

  45. Kim Rashad on August 25, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I agree with you tomorrow kitty. I hate going in Home Depot and Walmart the way they discard their plants.

  46. The Greenery Garden Centre on August 25, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    How about the cool weather we’re having? Feels a little tropical!

    It’s about to get up to the 30s this weekend, so enjoy it while you can ☀️
