The best vertical garden plants we have used (in Melbourne Australia) for sunny outdoor locations are largely succulents. We have trialed plants over three years to bring you our top 5 performing vertical garden plants for an outdoor sunny location.
You can treat most of these plants with very little regard. We have found each plant will continue to look showy throughout the seasons. Most of these plants require full sun however will tolerate a minimum of 4 hours a day.
All the plants listed are suitable for a west and north facing wall in the southern hemisphere. The plants will grow on an east face but will be less abundant. These plants are not suitable for a south facing wall as there is not direct sunlight.
