Exotic garden

By combining bold shapes and colours, this look creates an exotic style that can thrive in the gardens of London. The bombproof Fatsia Japonica lives happily in both bright and shady corners, while it's accompanied by the swordlike Phormium and brilliant red New Guinea in the sunny spot and by the Mediterranean Chamaerops and rugged Dryopteris ferns and red New Guinea once again in the shadier spot.

  • Tropical plants are perhaps more often considered as indoor plants, as they typically prefer the warmth afforded them inside the home. However, this collection does well to combine both naturally tropical plants and some convincing imposters to recreate this much-loved design theme.

Full of exciting shapes and colours, this look contrasts the rigidity of contemporary garden design with wild abandon. For me, a firm favourite.
