Moving South? Bring your houseplants!

By

Moving South? Leaving the cold winter weather behind? You might want to consider bringing your houseplants with you. Chances are, they will grow happily outdoors and adorn your home in the Sunshine State.

I moved to Central Florida, aka Florida's Heartland in 2003 and I was amazed to see the vast amount of northern houseplants being used as year around landscaping plants in Florida:

Caladiums, Dragon Trees, Bromeliads, Boat Lilies, Poinsettias, Crotons - just to name a few.

Hint: if you like Caladiums, visit Lake Placid in August for the Annual Caladium Festival. Lake Placid is known as the Caladium Capital of the World as over 95% of all caladiums are actually grown here. You can get your hands on premium bulbs, buy mature plants or visit the caladium fields (bring the camera). Of course, there's also plenty of local food specialties, refreshments, arts & crafts available
