In reply to doing your new garden if you want to give it a tropical feel the best route to go is by putting some nice looking palm trees. There are many kinds of palm trees you could put but if you want to give it a nice tropical feel I would suggest going with some big, 10 feet sylvester date palm tree's then add some small/medium sized Royal palms and cabbage palms. You'll definitely get a great tropical feel!

Default I second what Palmer said

The first thing that pops into my mind when I think tropical is in fact Palm trees. I think some nice tall looking palm trees would go great in your garden. Pygmy date palms make anything look tropical. You might live in North Carolina, but placing some of these palm trees out, for a second you might think your in a topical paradise

Default Helping you create your tropical paradise!

If you want to make it a tropical paradise just like everyone else is saying your gonna want to definitely add some palm trees. Sylvester palms are nice, but I would check out some Royal palms. Add some exotic plants to the mix. Your gonna want variety in your garden. Add some Plastic flamingos in the mix to give it the feel as if you really are in a tropical paradise

Default Help on choosing what palms

If you go on here to the Real palm tree site and literally just look through all the palm trees they have they will tell you in details what each palm tree is and specific information that you need to know about the palm. I did that before I purchased my sylbester date and best thing i could of done.

Default My status on my garden

So my garden is slowly but surely coming along. I actually placed an order for some sylvester date palms on this site. Spoke to one of the plant specialist over the phone and guaranteed me the best Sylvester dates from their nursery. Thanks palmer for the idea because I ended up liking a lot those palms. I am gonna go ahead and start with those palms tree then make my way up once i get other plants in the garden. Joey the flamingo idea is great and I am definitely going to look into those flamingos.

Jose how long did it take until your sylvesters arrived?

The state of North Carolina has warm areas where you can grow cold hardy palms. Here is a list of palm trees that can grow in North Carolina:

California Fan Palm Tree Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
Canary Island Date Palm Tree Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
Chinese Fan Palm Tree Zones 8a 11 (10 to 15 F)
True Date Palm Tree Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
European Fan Palm Tree Zones 7b 11 (5 to 10 F)
Mexican Fan Palm Tree Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
Queen Palm Tree Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
Saw Palmetto Palm Tree Zones 7a -11 (0 to 5 F)
Silver Saw Palmetto Palm Tree Zones 7a 11 (0 to 5 F)

I would love to see a photo or two of how your garden turns out! Palm trees are so beautiful! It's great that you can produce your own tropical paradise using palms in a large part of the USA!
