Shopping for plants in Antigua, West Indies

Today we are heading to a Plant Nursery in Antigua, to get some more plants for a friend's garden. Here is a lovely Hibiscus plant, they are available in many colours, the most common variety being red. We used to have  a 6ft. Hibiscus hedge around our yard in Guyana, South Amercia.

Most tropical flowering plants are brightly coloured, as is everything in the Tropics. 

This large tree is quite stunning, never mind all of the plants around it.

Maidenhair ferns, these are easy to grow in the Tropics. I must confess they are tough to grow in North America, 

In the Tropics, we grow Orchids in the air, like a hanging plant, Today we are here to buy Orchids to plant on my friend's dock, so I must stop gawking at everything, and help her choose from this wide variety. 

Visit The Camellia, for Caribbean inspired Tropical decor.
