Low maintenance tropical plants Q&A

Which plants are good for the low maintenance landscape front yard?

There are so many low maintenance plants that you should be able to find several for your landscape. One of the easiest plants to grow is the Kalanchoe family. Oops, got too rough with it and broke a leaf off? No problem. That leaf is going to fall to the ground and grow more plants for you. Another very low maintenance landscape plant for the front yard is the Arachis glabrata Golden Glory or Ornamental Peanut. You can plant this and forget it. No watering, fertilizing or mowing. Plant some in your grass for color during the spring and early summer.

How big will a low maintenance plant get?

Our low maintenance plant pages all have icons under the name of each plant. The first one tells you how the plant grows. Either a ground cover, large or small shrub, large or small tree, or a vine. Most of our plants that are listed as small shrub make great low maintenance shrubs or flowers for the tropical landscape. Every person is different, so the best low maintenance landscaping plants for you will be those that best meet the needs of your particular piece of property and those that appeal to you. If you have a large space, there are plenty of low maintenance tropical landscape plants here to help you fill it.

Can I grow low maintenance tropical plants indoors?

Of course you can. There are many low maintenance indoor plants to be found here. Many of the plants listed as ground cover or low growing make great borders around the outside of a planter. Put a nice low maintenance bush type plant in the center and you will have a wonderful planter for your covered porch or entry. Just make sure they will get sufficient light. And remember that plants grown indoors, in pots can be sensitive to fertilizers. Sunshine BoostersSunshine Boosters liquid, amino acid based fertilizers are recommended.
