Suitable are evergreen (Vinca), various Ferns, lady’s mantle (Alchemilla), Ruprecht’s herb (geranium robertianum), ferruginous (Aconitum), magnificent trellis (astilbe) and leadwort (plumbago auriculata).
Before you choose the right plants for your front garden, you should consider in which direction your front garden is located. We have tips for shady, semi-shady and Sunny gardens.
If the front garden is on the south side, it receives at least a few hours of sun a day. Typical plants for a semi-shaded front garden are, for example, Star umbels (Astrantia), Stork beak (Geranium), autumn anemones (anemone hupehensis), Gedenkemein (Omphalodes verna), Bergenie or the popular Rhododendron.
If you have a sunny front garden, then this looks particularly inviting with a sprawling planting. Suitable for all kinds of perennials such as purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), blue diamond (Perovskia abrotanoides), cushion Phlox (Phlox subulata) or steppe candles (Eremurus). Pretty dashes of color prepare your visitors with different types of peonies (Paenoia) with spherical ornamental garlic (Allium cristophii) and glowing tulips. Also ornamental grasses, such as the bearskin grass (Festuca scoparia) are maple beautiful variants, or small trees, such as the ball.
