How does Cheryl Ladd Take Care of Her Garden?

When she is not working or designing signature homes, this former Charlie’s angel spends most of her time tending her garden.

We could assume that she has gardening helps to keep up with the regular needs of Zone 6-10 tropical plants that she owns.

You can tell she does not settle for a low-maintenance plant.

How to Create Your Own Celeb Garden Like that of Cheryl Ladd?

To start off, consider all her plant choices are hardy, tropical plants appropriate for homes.

For instance, you can choose hardy houseplants like a dumb cane to decorate the entrance, patio, and living room.

Dieffenbachia, or Dumb Cane, has more than 50 species and is known to purify indoor air.

Another great addition would be hardy orchids that can be grown indoors or used as cut flowers appropriate for USDA 6-11.

Go bold with tropical treasures like Sago Palm (cycas revoluta) that grows best in zones 8-11, but care to provide proper insulation throughout the winter if the temperature drops below 50°F in winter.

Those living in the South and Central Texas region should consider planting local trees least prone to pests and diseases.

Some examples include Northern red oak, black oak, southern live oak, and water oak, which are endemic to Texas.

You can experiment with different tropical varieties like cacti and succulents, plumeria, hibiscus, bird of paradise, and ferns.
