Living Walls clean stormwater, sequester and fix carbon while reducing CO2, they pump oxygen back into the atmosphere, provide habitat to pollinators, birds, butterflies and more and create a sense of beauty.
Not only do living walls bring colors with flowers and greenery with a variety of leaves, but they also can provide structure.
Take for instance the Thunbergia vine growing here. A two year old vine, this plant sends shoots up the trellis from it's base.

During North Florida's cold winters Thunbergia dies back.
The next spring the vine reappears even thicker. Thunbergia is not considered invasive and is a great larval food plant.
Pollinators love the flowers.
