Architectural Plants

Architectural Plants
Architectural plants have a strong and distinctive shape both in their leaf form and in their overall growth pattern. Many of the best architectural plants are evergreen or have a distinctive presence if grown indoors in containers. Others can properly fit into the category of architectural plants because of their bark coloration or branch shape or because they provide interest and colour during the dull winter months. By definition architectural plants tend to be fairly large.
This is our favourite selection, we do have others, you find them by using the a-z on the right hand menu or the keyword search in the top menu.
