Welcome to Hardy Exotics . . .

Hardy Exotics is at the heart of exotic gardening in the UK. We have developed a unique collection of exotic looking plants most of which are propagated and grown on site.


You can create an exotic looking garden almost anywhere in the country. Plenty of friendly advice is on hand to help you choose the plants suitable for your garden climate.


Hardy Exotics has a unique and unrivalled collection of over 1,500 species of plants ideal for exotic gardening. They have been gathered as seeds and cuttings and then developed in our nursery in Cornwall over the last thirty years. These include: Palms, Bananas, Canna and Ginger Lilies, Agaves, Gunnera, Echiums, Agapanthus, Bamboos, Grasses, Succulents, Voodoo Lilies, Exotic Trees, Shrubs, Climbers and hundreds more to turn your garden into an "Earthly Paradise"

Symbol Guide

When visiting Hardy Exotics, you will enjoy a totally unique experience. Our nursery nestles below huge banks planted out with palms, succulents, puyas, gunnera, and all sorts of dramatic plants, too numerous to mention. Our symbol guide is to assist you in choosing the right plants for your own garden.

Hardy-ness Zones

We are bursting at the seams with rare, unusual, weird and wonderful species. To help you choose plants suitable for your area of the country we have developed a zoning system. The British Isles is divided into eight zones and every plant on our list is allotted to the zones it can reasonably be expected to grow in.
