Martha's exotic Backyard in Israel

An introduced species of flowers (also known as naturalized species or exotic species) can be a plant that is not native to a given location
but instead has been accidentally or deliberately introduced to a new location by human activity or by natural means.
Tropical Flowers are those species of flowers that are native to the tropics, the region of the Earth centered on the equator
and limited in latitude by the Tropic of Cancer in the northern hemisphere, at approximately 23°30' (23.5°) N latitude,
and the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere at 23°30' (23.5°) S latitude.

All tropical flowers are thus exotic to Israel. But not necessarily all exotic flowers are tropical flowers!
