Question Patio Plants Help With Making Descisions...

I want my patio to be a tropical paradise, the only thing is I live up north. I heard that the Musa Basjoo is a good plant to have because when it freezes, after it thaws it grows back up from the roots. I also heard the European fan palm is cold hardy for up here and the needle palm.... Does anyone else know what type of patio plants or palms we could put out on the patio which can survive long New York winters... I need to finalize my purchases soon since we started directly into summer and skipped spring time this year.

Default Making your patio into a tropical paradise when living up north

I am replying to Patio man and his question on what certain plants to put since its cold where he lives. Funny you mention you live up North because so do I and My backyard is my very own tropical paradise. The palm trees that I have used and have been able to survive this cold weather have been the Cabbage palm and the Windmill palm. Not only are they gorgeous but they can withstand the cold weather. Adding these two will make your tropical paradise

Default In response to patio mans question with making his own tropical paradise in New York

I live in New jersey and the palm trees that I have to survive the cold are the European fan palm. I've had a couple out for a good 2 years now and they have been able to with stand the cold and still look great. If I were you, you should totally look into these palm trees because by the sounds of it I think this palm tree would be your best bet.

Default European fan palm can withstand cold weather?

I live up North and just saw your comment that the Europen fan palm can withstand the cold. Is this true? Bicky, your palms have been able to survive the weather?

Default I am building a courtyard/patio area and need some advice on what types of plants

the planting area is about 18inches and so the plants would need to be able to fit in that area and grow vertical so as to not hinder someone walking by. I started looking at the areca palm but they get bushy and are going to poke out towards the sun, is there any desert type plants that wouldn't poke out and fit into a small planting area?

Musa Basjoo isnt that the banana that looks purple? I heard something like that. Do you know how cold? I want one. I have a few collection palms that are doing great. Im scared of getting anything that will not tolerate some cold in Michigan. I was wondering if the bamboo will do. apparently they do not need much sunlight or water someone recommended bamboos for the bathroom or kitchen anywhere in my loft where theres not much or any sunlight. Kinda strange every palm is different. Anyway patio man for your patio option stick to the cold hardy palms like windmills.
