If you're looking for a stylish garden this summer, think tropical. The "cat's pajamas" of the gardening world, tropical plants are once again in vogue and all the rage. The tropical look features an abundance of lush, large, colorful and leafy foliage — typical of canna and banana — as well as bright, vibrantly colored flowers with unusual shapes, such as golden shrimp plant and hibiscus. Even if you live in colder climates, you can create dramatic summer landscapes atypical of your region.
