A mix of sun and shade
This steep bank mixes sun and shade species, from aloes and groundcovers, to bulbs and shrubs. This is a great no-mow option for a bank.
This beautiful, long-flowering groundcover is one of the best plants for a sunny wall garden.
A long, narrow wall bed
At the top of the stairs, Senecio barbertonicus fills in the tight space with leaf cover from the soil up. Leonotis leonurus is tall enough to show its fluffy orange flowers above the cement railing.
Aloe vanbalenii and Euphorbia grandicornis at back, fronted by the low-growing Othonna carnosa and large flat leaves of Kalanchoe thyrisflora.
A Winter Show
Aloe ferox, Dietes grandiflora, and Pelargonium tongaense are a water-wise and easy-care combination.
This drought-hardy species looks outstanding in wall gardens and rockeries.
Texture, form and colour
Othonna produces lovely foliage and little yellow buttons than flow over the edge. Crassula ovata is slow growing and adds a gnarled charm to the bed, reducing glare from the pale wall. Kalanchoe is grey-green in summer, and red and russet in winter.
A bright purple container enhances the lemon-yellow flowers and fat grass-green leaves.
Felicia and Cotula sericea
Gorgeous companions for a stone wall.
Hot sun brings out the gorgeous scents of this species.
A sunny mix
Lampranthus aureus, Barberton Daisies, and Imperata cylindrica mass together for a grassland effect in this large, sunny raised bed.
Neat and minimal?
Static form plants, like Aloes, Cycads and Cotyledon orbiculata, hold their space in this raised bed. A beautifully constructed pole wall separates the bed from the gravel floor below.
A Stone Display Case
A boulder wall provides a neat, elegant display case for a Cycad collection.
Just add light
An outside light that echos an old street light design illuminates this gorgous garden.
An excellent choice to soften and brighten a shady walled bed. Stems will root in gaps and spread out further from the mother-plant.
Lime-green to lift the low light
Add Bulbine latifolia to a shady bed. This species is found naturally around rocks and won't mind roots squeezed into small spaces.
Colour for Shade
Clivia miniata, Plectranthus verticillatus, and ferns fit easily in this narrow shady wall bed.
This pretty Crassula species has dense foliage that hangs neatly over the edge of a wall.
