Answer #1 · Chason Arthur's Answer · This would depend on where you live and what type of tropical plant it is. Generally speaking, tropical plants are those which are native to the tropics or warmer regions of the United States such as south Florida. Tropicals are typically hardy in USDA Zones 10 (maybe 9) and further south. So, the answer to your question could be yes if you live in south Florida where there are many tropical plants you can grow as perennials or perennials shrubs that can be left to grow outdoors during winter. In gardens north of Zone 10 you will most likely have to overwinter tropical plants indoors. This doesn't mean tropicals aren't worth growing in northern regions. You can either bring them indoors or use them as seasonal annuals around swimming pools and other outdoor living areas.)
