Recommendations for balcony plants

Post  susan35332 on 6/27/2017, 2:49 pm


I am looking for plants "green" my balcony in my apartment. My balcony has partial sunlight. I am looking for all-year round, northern VA native plants with relatively low water usage. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you!

Hi, Susan--

Are you looking for edible plants?  Most of the veggies are not natives.  Or just plants that are low maintenance?  Flowers?  Again, most natives are kinda weedy-ish.  Can you give us more details, how many containers, size, etc.  

glad you\'re here

Hi Susan. Welcome from Atlanta, GA! Glad you're here.

Sounds like you'll need a mix of sun & shade plants... You might do a search in the upper left corner for those specifics....

And are you looking to do any trellising or vertical gardening?
