What is a Mobilane Green Screen, climbing or hedging plant?
A Mobilane Green Screens consist of individual screens that are completely covered with various species of climbing or hedging plants. This ingenious patented system creates within one season a dense and fully covered screen.
The different varieties of the Mobilane Green Screen
The Mobilane Green Screen is available in nine different species. We’ve listed them for you below with their characteristics. The plants of a Mobilane Green Screen grow in a biodegradable coconut planter. In this coconut planter, a strong metal frame has been placed on which the plants grow. The coconut planter is a mix of coco fibres that are held together by natural latex. The coconut planter is biodegradable. After one or two years, the planter has been degraded and the roots will grow in the surrounding soil.
1. Carpinus betulus (Hornbeam)
The Carpinus betulus is a winter hardy hornbeam. This hornbeam has many veined leaves with a double serrated edge. During the summer, the leaves are dark green on the upper side and lighter on the reverse side. During the winter, the dull brown leaves remain partly on the hedge.
This hedge has hardy, yellowish green scarlet leaves with beautiful colours during the autumn and winter. The top of the sheet is deep bronze and the bottom is purple. Tolerates extensive pruning.
The Hedera Helix Glacier is a hard ivy species with grey-green, three-lobed leaves. The leaves have white edges and silver grey inside. The Hedera Helix Glacier grows a little bit slower than the Hedera Helix Woerner, but has a good disease resistance.
The Hedera Helix Goldchild is an ivy with a dense growth. The leaves are grey-green with a beautiful yellow edge. The Hedera Helix Goldchild is a fast grower.
The Hedera Helix Green Ripple is an average growing ivy with dark green 5-lobed leaves. The leaves are approximately 5 to 10 centimetres long. The stems are well branched.
This hedge is the most popular ivy species of the Hedera Helix variety. The Hedera Helix Woerner is a very strong winter hard ivy. This ivy has 4 to 6 centimetres large dark green leaves and has variable leaf shapes. During the winter, the Hedera Helix Woerner slightly changes the colour of the leaves to reddish-brown.
The Hedera Helix White Ripple is an average growing ivy. The 5-lobbed leaves are grey-green and have a playful grey-white border.
8. Hedera hibernica
The Hedera Hibernica is a winter hard ivy. The leaves are with their 4 to 6 centimetres large and shiny. The leaves have deeply lobed leaf edges. When planted in coastal environments, the Hedera Hibernica is completely winter hard. For inland locations, we advise you to choose for the Hedera helix ‘Woerner’.
The Pyracantha ‘Dart’s Red’ is a winter hardy Firethorn with red berries. The berries are non-poisonous. During the spring, the hedge is richly blooming with white umbrella-shaped flowers. This strain is resistant to fire blight. The hedge keeps her leaves during the winter. The Dart’s Blanket is highly suitable as a defensive plant.
