A grave can not be seen as a single ükleiner Gartenü, but a grave is always part of a burial ground. That is why you should be guided by the grave architecture and the respective enclosure in the entire cemetery.
In order to make a grave design for the summer meaningful, beautiful and yet easy to care for, it is advisable to graze this ground covering. If possible with a Grundbepflanzung, a plant variety. This has the advantage that in the summer, the earth surface of the tomb remains moist for as long as possible and at the same time it prevents rinsing, the Wegschwemmen the earth. A nice alternative to the traditional summer plantings on graves is a perennial. So for example a heart flower or also called a weeping heart. The correct name is Dicentra spectabilis, it belongs to the perennial shrubs and loves it in the light shade or in partial shade. The girl's eye (Coreopsis) blooms from early summer to fall and enchants visitors on tombs. She loves it sunny. After the first flowering, it is advisable to cut it back, so it continues again and blooms almost inexhaustibly.
Plants for the foundation of the grave design
The girl's eye is a beautiful example of a frugal ground cover, which takes over the grave decorations near the ground even from June to August, but there are still some other undemanding flowering plants, which are ideal for grave design: also sunny colors bring the flowers of the Yellow Elfflower, this elven flower of the genus "Frohnleiten" is the only one that can really be recommended as groundcover. It also grows in the shade and helps you with weed control, with its tough and closely spaced roots. The carpet-gold strawberry adorns the ground in the spring with no yellow flowers and forms otherwise with their foothills quickly a dense blanket on the grave, even in quite shady locations. The soil should provide some food, otherwise the perennials also known as Waldsteinie have few claims. Also Balkan cranesbill and spotted lungwort are robust enough for a not constantly cultivated location and develop in spring flowers, in tender pink, red or purple, and the lungwort provides according to the name even for flat leaf jewelry. The small-leaved periwinkle is much more subtle in the choice of color. You can choose between delicate blue or white flowers. The evergreen subshrub is frugal in reasonably loose and nutrient-rich soil, spreads more and more over ground shoots and flowers from May to September.
The ground cover for the grave can also be kept quite natural: a classic grave design is the ivy, and rightly so: it is strong and evergreen, and you can spread it as a ground cover and climb on any support. Good hardy varieties, eg. B. "Lake Balaton" are best on the grave, ivy actually grows on any soil and is otherwise quite modest. A very decorative ground cover is the Haselwurz, which brings with its dark green leaves also some gloss on the surface. However, he wants partial shade and shade, so it can be planted well as a base under other trees. The Ysander, also colloquially also Dickmännchen or shade green, forms wonderful and closed green blankets, which let no other growth through. Ysander needs a normal nutrient-rich soil and tolerates almost everything, even a fall foliage cover, only a too acidic soil is slightly bad. Particularly suitable for the grave cover is the variety "Green Carpet", as it is only up to 20 cm high and is extremely hardy.
Or should it be a special surface jewelry? The evergreen creeping spindle is your plant of choice if you want to bring color through the groundcover into the tomb design: It has multicolored leaves, even in different varieties, you can choose between green-white (the variety "Emerald Gaiety") and green-yellow ("Emerald Gold "), Both turn red or reddish in winter. The creeping spindle does not have any claims, but when it receives a lot of sun, the colors develop more beautifully. The foam bloom is a frugal underplantation that forms a dense blanket with its foothills, but does not press the roots of the shrubs, which are unruly in competition, over it. You can z. B. very well planted under rhododendrons, which are sensitive in this regard, and it also holds out all other fall on it autumn leaves masses. As of May, it covers the area with many tiny white flowers that remain until early summer.
Durable and decorative grave design with shrubs
All these ground cover are also an effective protection for the earth surface and form a durable and decorative basis on which you can now settle higher plants for grave design:
The above-mentioned watery heart is just one of the many perennial growths that can develop as single plants on a grave to a truly magnificent bush. Very popular as a permanent grave jewelry are also all kinds of roses, which are not necessarily cut every year. If the roses are allowed to grow as they like, the rose bush grows over time again, many people like such a rose bush very well, it seems undeniably very romantic.
If the ground in the cemetery is permanently enriched with the dropping of various conifers there, it will most likely be sour enough to give a rhododendron really good conditions. If you really want to plant a rhododendron, but the ground in the cemetery is not sour enough: Today there are rhododendron cultivars that even like calcareous soils.
These are just examples, as I said, it depends on the whole environment, which shrubs you choose for the grave design. Within the specifications that the ambience makes you, you will certainly still have several types of shrubs to choose from. Maybe you choose them together with your children and tell them something about the deceased? Then you probably have much better chances, if you want to ask later for help the grave care in the offspring.
