3 of the best plant ty pes for liv­ing walls

Essentials (South Africa) - - SMART SOLUTIONS -

Creep­ers Bulk up your liv­ing wall with plenty of green­ery and add a splash of colour with some fra­grant flow­ers. Suit­able op­tions for liv­ing walls in­clude flow­er­ing ivy, white potato vine, starry jas­mine, and wis­te­ria.

Suc­cu­lents These hardy but gor­geous plants re­quire min­i­mal care and will look beau­ti­ful all year round. Pop­u­lar types in­clude Christ­mas cac­tus, echev­e­ria, jelly bean plant, cras­sula and string of pearls.

Herbs Now you can bring your herb gar­den right into your home. Spice up your liv­ing wall (and your cook­ing) with basil, pars­ley, mint, thyme, co­rian­der, and oregano. Put your planter some­where you can reach for reg­u­lar cut­ting.
