Selecting the right plants is key to creating a successful green wall.
The use of evergreen plants is recommended in living wall systems, especially as evergreen plants contribute to visual appeal with year-round foliage. The selection of plants should be based on the desired outcome, whether it is for thermal insulation, aesthetic appeal or food production.
This list of plants is just a recommendation. Visit your local nursery to find out what plants are best for you.
