Strawberry Walls

Strawberries are harvested from a vertical garden using Florafelt Living Wall Planters in Brentwood, California. The steaming hot summers of California's Central Valley are famous for their plentiful produce harvests. Getting the plants off the ground helps curb inset attack and makes for easy pickings. It's fun to just walk up and get a snack. http://PlantsOnWalls.com

Plants On Walls Revisits Urban Bistro a Year Later

A year ago, PlantsOnWalls installed a 14" x 12" living wall with 360 individual ferns using Florafelt pocket planters for Urban Bistro in Burlingame, California. Now we're back to see how they've grown. A close look at the blue star fern shows some expansion of its unusual root system.

BLUE STAR FERN (phlebodium aureum mandaianum): The Blue Star Fern is a beautiful but rugged fern that makes a vivid accent for your vertical garden. After a few years, the fuzzy orange roots begin to crawl over the felt pockets, creating even more dynamic color contrasts.

The fantasy-blue color of this easy-to-grow fern is reminiscent of nautical and water-related design, and make it a stunning addition to living walls. The oversized fronds make a bold canvas for the truly striking color. Best grown in shade to part shade, this is a very forgiving fern, provided it is not overwatered, and shows good drought tolerance.
