Most potted plants you think would be Mediterranean origin. But as the word says, all the plants which thrive in the pot without problems throughout the year, can be potted plants.

The non-Mediterranean pot plants even have an advantage in this regard because they can stay outdoors throughout winter and even they stay partially evergreen.

Thus, these outdoor potted plants can stay outside over the winter.

Cycas revoluta (Sago Palm) grows best in shade or partial shade. In southern countries, they can actually grow in full sun, but here in Germany we have determined that the Cycas burn quickly and immediately look ugly if they get too much sun.

Pot plants in the summer for the partial shade


Citrus calamondin ( bitter orange, calamansi ) – they don’t like direct sunlight. In partial shady or even shady locations they grow best and carry fruits.

Kumquat (fortunella) - In full sun, they do not thrive well. Whereas in partial shade or even (warm) shade they grow well and bear fruits.

Olive tree (Olea europeae) need not necessarily be in full sun. Also, a warm semi-shaded site is sufficient for the olive tree.

Washingtonia robusta palm can be kept very well in a pot in its younger years ! Both in the direct sun, but even better in partial shade. We personally find this palm more elegant in habit than the windmill palm Trachycarpus.

Windmill Palm ( Trachycarpus fortunei ) is a palm type which can tolerate some frost and thus can be planted outdoors in certain protected locations. However, we don’t recommend using it as pot plant during winter because of dangers to the root due to frost. But an excellent plant in full sun and into the late autumn, with the first frosts to -5 °C / 41° F is not a problem.

Mandarine tree ( citrus reticulata ) need not necessarily be in full sun. A warm location in partial shade is just as good for the mandarine tree. However, the best fruits develop in bright sunlight (… with enough water )

Japanese Holly ( Ilex crenata ) - garden bonsai is great as pot plant. Also Evergreen, grows best in the shade or partial shade. They can also stand direct sun but the leaves become very bright and may not look as nice anymore. Considerable risk of dehydration in tubs.

Japanese maple ( Acer palmatum and many species, subspecies and kinds ) also well suited for pots. Why not ! However, when used as pot plant in full sunlight the leaves soon become weak, so choose rather partial shade and shadow.

Basic information about winterized potted plants in sunny locations

These plants are often vulnerable to ‘freeze-drying’. That is when the sun shines in spring a few days warmer, especially the evergreen plants like to go back in the flow of energy. Thus it is advisable to water these plants in winter so that they won’t dehydrate when root ball or pot are still frozen. The plants would then dry out and die.

This happens quite often. Then in spring many think that the damage comes from frost, though most often it’s dehydration !!
Of course, there are countless other pot plants. This is only a small selection from all available plants.
