Outdoor plants may be more hardy than houseplants. This is normal because they are exposed to more variable and more natural climatic conditions. They have all the light and fresh air they need. However, if you don’t have a green thumb, it can be difficult to keep a plant alive, whether it’s indoors or not. That is why, with the beautiful days approaching, we reveal a list of 6 rather robust plants to decorate and beautify your balcony or terrace!
1) Le rudbeckia
The bright yellow petals and almost black center catch the eye. Known for being extremely resistant, this flower will sublimate your balcony. All this plant needs is a lot of sun.
The marigold flowers from July to November. Very resistant, all soil types suit it perfectly.
The hollyhock is a robust perennial that accepts all earthy, even stony environments. It is very easy to maintain and requires almost no maintenance.
Honeysuckle is prized for its scent reminiscent of the soft morning dew. It grows quickly and is very easy to grow. It is in February that flowering is at its peak when the weather is milder. It is therefore a particularly hardy plant. The ideal exposure is full sun for better flowering, but partial shade is fine.
This plant is not only easy to maintain, it is also cheap! Indeed, a single foot can become a real flower bed. It flowers from May to October.
6) The Ceratostigma
The ceratostigma is in fact an excellent ground cover. The red stems and blue flowers will beautify any balcony. Very easy to grow, it reproduces almost by itself. It quickly becomes invasive in large plots, but a container culture can control it.
