Border Plants

Hedging or Border plants are typically used to 'line' a garden bed, Usually a formal and easily pruned hedge. The advantage of a border is to separate garden beds from paths or paving areas. It also promotes the overall theme of a garden,  A deep green formal border can then lead to a rambling, combination of contrasting foliage and shape. 
The species in online plants border plants section are typically lower growing, ie: less than .5mt. Generally when choosing border plants, conservative species such as English boxEscallonia and Euonymous are considered,  this is because they are quite formal and can be pruned square as a box style border.   Rambling species such as Acacia limelight or flowing grasses such as Agapanthus dwarf species are also worth considering.  As are native grasses such as lomandra little con, and flowering low borders for shade areas, such as liriope.  
For taller growing, screen plants. See the Screen Plants category.
