Add the Finishing Touches, The plants you use in the garden go a long way towards creating that tropical, resort-style setting we’re after, but there are other things as well. The tasteful use of containers can greatly enhance the overall effect of your backyard resort.

Then, there are the interesting, tropical looking plants that may have no problems at all with winter weather.
