Give the garden an exotic flair
Solitary plants?! What’s this?
The solitary plants are plants, which are remarkable for their size. They prefer to be put on their own. One has the freedom to decide whether the solitary plants are present in the garden as flower beds or tubers. The interesting growth form and the unusual leaves, flowers and colors are characteristic for the solitary plants.
Various shrubs, shrubs or even trees appear as solitary plants. Evergreen beech trees, cypresses, juniper, yews, angels, oleanders, olive trees: evergreen plants that bring a fresh touch into the garden.

It is important to note that the solitary plants need enough space to thrive properly. This should be considered in advance, especially when planting solitary plants in garden beds. In the middle or in the background, these are the best, because only in this way do they correspond to the rest of the garden plants in the plant bed.
