About Boundary Plants
Boundary plants are usually planted to define property boundaries and provide privacy or to give shelter from prevailing winds. Boundary plants are comparatively easy to plant and form an attractive boundary more quickly than anyone can imagine. As well as providing structure to the garden, they can be perfect for wildlife, and particularly nesting birds.
Rows of thickly planted boundary plants can be a handsome way to define borders and boundary lines, keep children and pets in or out, and give birds shelter and even food. These boundary lines provide a proper demarcation and protection of your area from outsiders and provide you with personal space.
Tecomaria capensis, Vinca, Hibiscus are ornamental garden plants commonly used for screening and decorative purposes are one of the best examples of boundary plant. It can also be trimmed to form a hedge. It is often planted specifically to attract birds and butterflies. The dark orange color of these plants sometimes appears to be red because of environmental and sunlight factors.
