These stylish, structured plants add to the architectural features of the buildings as well as the gardens, where they are featured.

Usually impressive in their presence, they naturally draw the eye towards them and make for an unusual and striking display.

Our merchant partners provide architectural plants of the best quality, delivered to your door.

Architectural plants generally have sharp, stylised lines which complement the building structures where they are housed. They are often indoor plants and of an exotic nature, so many not stand up to extremes of temperature, especially in winter. Most architectural plants will need to be protected from frost and even extreme cold may destroy them.

They can look very impressive if planted in modern containers , taking care to ensure that their potting soil is of the right type for the plant in question and that the plant receives the correct nutrients / fertilisers and attention to keep it in good condition.

Many mature architectural plant species are very expensive to buy so investing in their care makes sound economic sense, as does the purchase of a good quality container which is frost proof and ultraviolet resistant.

Arhcitectural plants come in many shapes and forms, but in order to make a real statement, they are usually substantial in size at that point. They may be flowering or non-flowering species, where the leaves alone are interesting and exotic in nature.

Top garden designers usully advocate planting in threes or fives, although if the plants are used at a doorway, then a pair would be in order.  If the plants are being used indoors, then the choice of containers would be of almost as much importance as the choice of plants themselves.

It is important that if cactus varieties are used for their architectural attributes, that children cannot access the plants or injuries and allergies may result - they need to be kept well away from such plants.  Aloes and Cacti can make an impressive architectural statement but unsupervised children who can access such plants may injure themselves on the thorns.

Different species of plant will have entirely different requirements - some will want dry, desert-like conditions, others will want exotic rainforest simulation - either of these would not be healthy for the plant needing the opposite!!

Do your homework diligently and select your plants according to the location they will need to survive in and ensure they will get the attention they need and they will make a marvellous architectural statement to complement your house or office for many years.
