Florida Winter Flowering Plants
The best plants in
These flowers do exceptionally well in the sun or shade of the short, low sun days of winter.
65% of the beautiful flowers at Cyprus Gardens are the regular impatiens and 20% are wax leaf Begonias with other flowers like geraniums and petunias making up most of the rest. My advice is to plant what Cyprus Gardens plants the most of and water every other day.
Fertilize your plants like the green houses do with 3 months slow realize fertilizer. I use Vigoro it costs half as much as Osmocoat and has more of the trace ingredients needed by the plants.

Caladium A very showy plants that grow from a bulbs. They doesn't sprout from the bulbs until late April when the temperature doesn't get below 50 degrees. They go dormant when the temperature goes below 50 and lose their leafs.
Many plants grow great only in green houses where they us sodium vapor lights, temperature, water and humidity to make them grow great and make them bloom. You take them home and wow they soon look sick.
