Pool Enclosure Maintenance: Plants For Inside Pool Enclosure

Plants for inside pool enclosure

Looking for inspiration and trying to avoid mistakes as to what to plant in two 3 and a half foot square planters in the pool deck of our new home to be in Poinciana. We have electricity run out to them in case we want to do some landscape lighting.
So am thinking of plantings that would look nice with uplighting but wouldn’t overcrowd the space …???
I tried to check out pics in the older posts for this topic and some of the ones I really wanted to see (Chellamaral’s expecially) only got me to an ICloud logon screen. Guess there were changes last yr? Any way to see them? Also interested in space saving ideas, such as orchid or brom trees, etc.


Bird of Paradise, Robellini Palms, Pentas, Mona Lavender, Cordyline (any variety) and Crotons. Crotons do ok in the pool enclosure area of my yard. Instead of trees, I have used standards. I have a lantana and shrimp plant standard. Hibiscus and Duranta standards are very pretty as well. Scheflera adds some nice color, too.


If your pool has a screen cage around it, you need to consider shade tolerant plants. I’ve got philodendrum, peace lily, and ginger in mine and all are doing well. Beware of flowering or messy plants, you don’t want to be picking up after them all the time.


I would also recommend a Lady Palm. Mine have flourished on the patio that faces north and gets a lot of shade. Also, there are some beautiful ferns out there that are related to the birdsnest fern but smaller–these new ferns are frilly and grow really well in pots. Mine has tripled its size in less than a year and is absolutely beautiful. I have three of them outside in the garden too and my potted one is much bigger. Oh, I’ll be moving my orchids out to the same are within the next 2 weeks. They love it out there too.


Here is a picture that includes the lady palm and the frilly fern. I got all 3 of the ferns at local nurseries–2 at one place, and the third at a different place. They are real easy care. My husband looked at the picture and said he thought these plants were a step above the average pool plant. I’m not sure, but I do love them. Neither of them sheds. I looked for any plant information, and none of the ferns were tagged. If you print out this picture and take it to a nursery, they might recognize it. Goggling might help too.
