Among the variety of garden plants, there are not only cultures that attract with their luxurious flowers or noble foliage, but also plants, the main pride of which is rightfully considered to be silhouettes and an unusual structure. Such garden stars are called architectural stars.
Architectural plants are a group of horticultural crops that are distinguished by their decorative "stability" and graphical habit. They are characterized by expressive outlines of the silhouette, ornamental pattern of the crown, the shape or size of the stems, inflorescences or leaves, which give plants graceful outlines, unusual symmetry or patterning, which evokes analogies with classical elements of architecture.
A common feature of all architectural plants is the maximum showiness, expressiveness and purity of lines, clarity and absolute beauty of the silhouette, the ability to attract the eye with extraordinary details, to stand out in any composition and in any company. Such plants play the role of focal points, place impressive accents, graceful decorations that bring harmony and completeness to the composition and the garden as a whole.
The ability to maintain attractiveness regardless of the season and even in winter is not characteristic of all architectural plants, but stability and the ability to become a reliable basis for compositions - yes.
