These plants are generally very hardy, particularly once established. They can add a different mood to a garden through the typically soft, narrow foliage, contrasting with the broader leaves of most other tropical garden plants. Many species can be invasive, blocking pipes, lifting paving or cracking walls. Bamboos are particularly notorious. In this course, you'll learn about the taxonomy and culture of a range of soft-wooded tropical plants including annuals, perennials and bulbs. Includes material on potential problems and propagation.
