We’ve already spoken a lot about Japanese gardens, and today I’d like to share some plant ideas to create such a typical garden successfully and so that it fit the climate.
- Japanese maple. It has a light and transparent foliage and offers a nice range of colors: from bright green to brilliant red.
- It’s evergreen and beautiful all year round.
- Holly berry. It’s shiny, persistent and is very popular in Japan.
- Oak, beech or hazel. It’s naturally simple and looks wild.
- Ericaceous plants like camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias.
- Ground covering plants. Soleirolia, sage can perfectly replace moss or grass, where it does not grow.
- Cherry or almond trees. Cherry trees are awesome in flowering, and almond have a long blooming period.
- Willows look amazing and really remind of Japanese gardens.
- Giant bamboo. The giant bamboo can grow up to nine meters high and it looks very eye-catching.
- The dwarf bamboo. It’s a great frost resistant version of giant bamboo, appropriate for small gardens.
