Tropicals

You don't have to buy a flight to the beach to get your tropical fix! We offer a colorful selection of tropical plants that will look great on your front porch, patio or sunroom. Tropicals are not only unique and full of personality, many do a wonderful job at attracting wildlife.

Our Selection

We bring roughly 12,000 tropicals into our nursery each year to provide the largest possible selection. Tropicals are extremely heat tolerant by nature, and won't get beaten down by our intense Missouri summers. We have many varieties, both large & small, shipped direct from Florida!

In addition to ornamentals, we also carry tropical fruit & spice trees such as citrus, avocado, pomegranite, olives, nutmeg, and cinnamon, when available.

For peak selection, visit us April - June.
