How to create a “vertical” garden

Not all have large gardens and, for this, It’s better have some ideas to create flowering corners exploiting the vertical space rather than horizontal ones which we have not always free.So we’ve tried some flowers and plants that could be adapted for the purpose.It’s obvious that to create a beautiful corner flower vertically would be good to put in front of the lowest flowers and behind and to the sides ones of greater height, as is done in the group photo.

The Lupinus, develops a bush of a height of around 40-50 cm and colored spikes that in summer can exceed one meter in height. It’s a perennial plant so if you have not already a hedge, you can also use it to delimit spaces.To grow well needs sunny areas or semi-shaded or at least 6 hours of sun a day.

The Echinacea purpurea can reach heights of around 150 cm and colors uniquely garden.

It needs sunny and semi-shaded positions, such as lupine is a perennial plant that lasts several years.

In winter it requires no special care nor too much water.

The decorative Allium can reach 50 cm in height, while the smaller species are about 25-30 cm high.Its required a  drained soil and a sunny position.

The sunflower challenge all the other flowers in height and overlooks the garden looking at all from above.

If cultivated well it can grow over two meters.

The hollyhock is a solitary flower that typically grows wild in the summer or in hot areas. It does not need special care and good resistance to drought.

Can be cultured and grown in the garden but, you know, can become very high (even 180/200 cm!)

The colors are its most attractive feature.
