Answer: Shading plants


Dear Giambattista,
We thank you for contacting us about the advice of a shading plant, through the "" expert's column.
A plant that we think could adapt very well to its demands is the Lonicera. The Lonicera rampicante is a plant suitable for walls, fences and pergolas, i
flowers are tubular, with more or less developed terminal lobes, united in pairs and for some species they are perfumed. The Lonicera are cultivated in all well-drained soils, rich in organic substance in sunny or partially shaded positions, the climbing species are cultivated in semi-shady positions, so that the foot of the plant is in the shade and the foliage in the sun. The vines are planted in April - May, to form hedges, the plants are planted at a distance of 20-30 cm from each other.
Sincerely
