Ornamental plants

Ornamental plants are one of the broadest groups and include both annual and perennial plants. They can be sown directly into the ground or grown from seedlings and are divided into overwintering and non-wintering in the ground. A large proportion are greenhouse plants grown for cut flowers and for potted plants. They are used to decorate both indoor spaces and gardens. A particular type of ornamental plant is trees and shrubs – both deciduous and coniferous, as well as climbing plants.
