RHS Garden Wisley is planting an exotic garden ready for opening this July.
Plants will range from palms and bananas to dahlias, cannas and gazanias. More than 100 species in total will be planted originating from tropical areas such as Brazil and South Africa.
RHS Garden Wisley curator Matthew Pottage said: "With the recent revival of vibrant palm prints, indoor exotics and succulents, we are delighted to reveal our plans for the new Exotic Garden which will bring a tropical touch to Surrey.
"The garden will demonstrate the range of plants that can thrive in English gardens and we hope that it will inspire others to be bold and more adventurous with their choice of plants."
The garden has been designed with a mixture of circular and angular stone pathways which lead to a bespoke double lotus fountain, adorned with pineapple and passion flowers. Individual stone benches also decorated with passion flower detail will be dotted around.
RHS chief horticulturist Guy Barter recommended begonias, eucomis and lobelias to UK gardeners looking for a tropical twist.
