Huge tropical ferns and other plants are common sites along Crystal Drive during warm Washington area summers. Although the plants can survive year round in warmer climates, the plants need to be replaced with hardier species in the fall or be brought indoors. The Floral Frenzy’s Tropical Storm allows area residents and workers to rescue those plants that would have otherwise been thrown into the compost pile! Once brought indoors, these tropicals can thrive all-year long with lucky gardeners able to take home ferns, palms, ficus trees and banana plants. Stop by the Crystal City FreshFarm Farmers Market on Tuesday, October 8th at 3 PM (sharp – no plants to be given away before that time) to claim your green prize!
