"Foundation Planting" with higher growing plants, climbing shrubs, perennials and annuals, can be create without wall-bound growing systems. This lower level, inexpensive building greening is achievable. Growth areas or individual planting pits can be created in front of the facade, sometimes in combination with suspended wires. For walls with stucco outer cover and insulation, this could be an alternative if the wall should not be drilled. Also protection against graffiti often plays a role here. Here we demonstrate successful examples of groups of plants.
Of the known climbing plants suitable for such buildings beds and borders are shrub roses, or stem Roses. These are a good choice. ("Tree Roses, Standard Roses"), who develop their shoots and flowers on a single pretreated stem or thin trunk are another choice. However, the latter needs a support stake, while Rose bushes can green without a climbing aid or can be fixed with a selective system 1010. Nevertheless, it's the same with climbing roses species.
In addition to the roses, the perennial, woody "climbers" are also suitable. Firethorn, Cotoneaster, Espalier fruits and Wintercreeper are a few from the group. If applicable, you could lean these simply against the wall and they will naturally adhere. Other Climbers usually need a stake or climbing aid and are therefore hardly suitable for freestanding in a foundation bed and border planting. The soft and sensitive climbing perennials (hops) and the annual climbing plants also not be eligible.
From the large group of woody plants are many shrub-like species suitable for planting in front of walls, as shown in the image examples.
Bamboo and grasses are increasingly also used for wall gardens at the base in the environment of modern buildings.
With these plants one can obtain usually fast effects as with the above specified, also their flowerage is often more magnificent and above all, persistent. Often Sun flowers are used in northern Germany and in the Baltic area Hollyhocks ('Mallows')are a big tradition. The selection of plants thus always depends on the location and the regional conditions.
