What can I plant in my green wall?

High performance living walls require more than just sound product design – careful attention must be paid to plant selection and pairing.  Our team has developed and is continually expanding LiveWall Plant Design Guides, which make recommendations for indoor and outdoor living walls based on climate, lighting, moisture requirements, and growth habit.

Plant guides suggest companion selections for perennial, annual, succulent, tropical, and edible vertical garden plants.  LiveWall owners will be thrilled with their planting design by sticking to the golden rules listed in the introduction to each catalog of green wall plants.  Call us at 877-554-4065 for the latest copy or email

How were the living wall plant design guides developed?

We have dozens of trial living walls at our facilities and nearby public sites.  In these trial walls, we test plants for both indoor and outdoor performance and hardiness.  We are constantly trialing up to hundreds of different plant selections at a given time, and require that plants be of sufficient size, hardiness, and low maintenance to thrive in our green wall system.  In addition to these trials in our temperate climate, we have set up trials in the United Arab Emirates to evaluate performance of desert-friendly green wall plants.  Learn more about our commitment to research on our About Us page.
