I'm not sure but I think you need to remove and replant to keep from looking messy. Good luck!

What is that plant?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If the weather's warm enough, bring some reading out and sit awhile.
When extra seats aren't needed, stack them to create a small side table.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Bamboo Screens Make Your Garden Glow
Perhaps one of my favorite outdoor rooms to date, this collected look is pulled together with a backdrop that's sheer enough to allow for some filtered light, yet private enough to create a feeling of solitude. If you're thinking of adding some bamboo to your home, here are a few online sources to get your started: Bamboo and Tikis Bamboo Fencer Next: More ideas for designing your outdoor spaces
Scheer & Co. added this to Woven Style: Bring a Breezy Look Indoors
This transitional space — part indoor, part outdoor— looks cozy and tropical, thanks to the bamboo exterior shades and small woven side table.
Becky Harris added this to Favorite Blooms: Summer Sunflowers
It's always a treat to enjoy sunflowers outdoors, whether they are peeking over a fence or arranged in a vase. Tip: Try cutting the sunflowers height down so that most of the bloom is encased in a glass vase. Suzanne Kasler's Quatrefoil Vase is a good choice for emulating the look in this image.
Debra Prinzing added this to Privacy Screening Made Pretty
An off-the-shelf bamboo pull shade turns a tiny balcony into a spalike space for lounging. This is an affordable solution for renters or people who want instant screening without a lot of tools.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 8 Great Room Revamps for Mom
6. Relaxing Outdoor SpaceIf your mom's more of a "get your hands dirty" type, her own Zen garden space might be a better form of relaxation than a bubble bath. Sweep off an outdoor patio or rake the dead leaves out of her garden and freshen things up with a new layer of gravel and a potted plant or two. Buy a new patio chair or chaise and accent it with a colorful pillow, and you've got an instant outdoor reading and relaxing room. Must-haves: A truly comfortable outdoor space has all the makings of a great indoor space. Side tables for iced tea and magazines, pillows, blankets and good lighting (whether natural or artificial) are worth the extra effort. Decorating tip: Little things go a long way in outdoor spaces. Take the time to clear out any dead plants or leaves, and sweep surface areas.
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Give Your Home That Lazy Summer Vibe
All you need is one small area where you can get comfortable. Even if a balcony is your only outdoor space, you can create a summer chill-out spot.

12. Make a small space feel bigger. Short on space? Make it feel a little less cramped by using white, as shown in this rooftop garden. The crisp fabric of the seat cushion allows for a constant scene change with bold colored pillows, cut flowers and decorative accents.
Samantha Schoech added this to 7 Ways to Create a Gorgeous Outdoor Room
This outdoor getaway is separated and enclosed by an inexpensive bamboo screen.
10. Inject your personalityRemember, your outdoor space is as much an extension of you as it is an extension of your house. Think carefully about what you want to use it for and what you want to get out of it. Whether it’s a reading room, home office or alfresco dining spot, your small outdoor space could be the extra room you’ve always dreamed of.WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU…How do you make use of your balcony space?

Faites de votre balcon un espace de détente voire de méditation. Amateurs de sieste, optez pour une banquette, vous pourrez également y installer vos invités à l’heure du thé. Si besoin, protégez votre intimité avec des stores de bambou, des canisses, des plantes grimpantes…
