Autumn, Spring, Summer
It originates from Southern Africa and it belongs to the family Aizoacee. It is a perennial succulent plant that produces colored flowers similar to little daisies. The leaves are sturdy and fleshy and they contain a very sticky lymph that gives the plant a very strong and compact appearance.
It belongs to the family Onagraceae. The gaura is a perennial plant originating from North America (mostly Texas). Due to its origins it is a rustic and resistant plant. It produces a thick bush with green/ reddish leaves. The thin trunks have flowers with four petals, similar to the orchids, pink or white with yellow stamen.
It is known as “kangaroo paw” because of the shape of the flower. It is a rhizomatous perennial plant with australian origin. It prefers sunny or semi-shaded places; these plants don’t fear the cold and they can withstand periods of intense frost. Sometimes during the winter they lose the aerial part and they grow with the arrival of the spring. They can store watery lymph in the roots so that they can use it if they aren’t watered; for this reason they withstand even long periods of drought without problems.
It has always been recognized as the queen of flowers, with many meanings depending on the local traditions and the colors of the flowers. It originates from the temperate zones of Europe and Asia (the “Kordana” or “mini” variety originates from China). It is a thorny shrub with erect shape (it can also be cultivated as climbing with the aid of espaliers or pyramids). It has small, dark green and serrated leaves and produces the characteristic flower with many velvety petals with white, yellow, orange, pink, red, speckled colors. In many varieties the flowers are perfumed; the “Kordana” variety stands out for the slightly smaller flowers and for the blooming that is flowering much more abundant and lasting than the other cultivations. For its features, as well as an ornamental plant, dried flowers of the rose are also used to produce infusions and essential oils for cosmetics.
It is known in different regions with different names: in Italian it is called porcellana, procaccia, purselana (Liguria), erba grassa (Lombardia), barzellana (Sardegna). In ancient Egypt it was already known as medical plant. It probably originates from Asia. It has reddish, fleshy, very branched stems and a prostrate shape which makes it an excellent groundcover plant: from June until the first autumn cold numerous rose-shaped flowers bloom on the apex of the branches, with wrinkled looking petals that close in the dark. It needs sun and regular watering.
