Many of the plants that project the tropical look aren't winter hardy below 15 to 20 degrees (USDA Zone 8). But many of these plants make excellent houseplants and can be overwintered in the home, spending summers in your garden.

The huge trumpet-shaped flowers and large leaves of angel's trumpet make a dramatic statement in any garden. A tropical plant that can grow up to 10 feet in one summer, this plant is great either for containers or the mixed border. White-, pink-, yellow-, peach- and purple-flowering varieties are available.
Give this plant moist, rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part or light shade. During the growing season feed every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer. Hardy to USDA Zone 7. In frost-free areas of the country--and in its native South America--angel's trumpet is a woody evergreen shrub.
