Perennial Plants for Green Walls

A limited variety of perennials are suited to each climate’s individual year-round challenges.  In most cases, with care according to the LiveWall maintenance guides, we anticipate that perennials will typically perform well in the LiveWall system for 3-5 years before they become root-bound and must be divided or replaced.

For inspiration, we have added project examples to show the design flexibility of the LiveWall system when planted with perennials.  For even more ideas, click the button to the right to view our entire showcase of vertical garden projects.
