Eye Catching Retaining Walls and Staircases


Here is a colorful, vibrant, yet low maintenance way to ornate your walls, staircases or raised beds - and was very easy to realize. Use one striking shrub, Russelia equisetiformis, a favorite among gardeners looking for alternative textures.

Coral Plant (Russelia Equisetiformis) is a highly ornamental shrub with slender, wispy stems spilling out like a waterfall and ablaze with clusters of bright, coral-red tubular flowers, which attract hummingbirds and butterflies. This striking multi-branched plant has virtually no foliage and will gracefully cascade from your walls or raised beds in a beautiful, continuous warm display of scarlet blossoms from late spring to fall (all year in warm climate areas).
