exotic plants and temperate climates

As I have mentioned before, I have this vision of converting the screened porch into a plant filled oasis where I can go sit and have my coffee and look out on the street and passersby.

This is going to take a little work. And a little research on my part. I envision an English Conservatory, just A LOT smaller. I would like to try some Exotic Plants . This will be new to me.

Unlike my previous plant hardiness zone, exotics will need a lot more protection here in Indiana. The Pacific Northwest was a more temperate climate, ideal for exotics in the garden. Can I create that environment here?

A little slice of home.
