The Tradescantia Virginiana (or Gold) is a herbaceous plant that prefers tmid-shade exposure (not direct light); it needs abundant watering during the summer and manuring during the autumn and spring with organic fertilizing. It blooms during the spring/summer. Flowers do not last for a very long time but the production continues for the whole warm season, until the first cold.
Phylica Ericoides is a perennial shrub belonging to the familiy Rhamnacee, very common in the Mediterranean basin. Usually the Phylica Ericoides is cultivated in open ground; it is not very resistant to cold winter temperatures. Its cultivation is quite simple and it does not require special interventions. In general, it is sufficient to place it in the right position and it’s important to remember to water it two or three times a month. It blooms during the winter.
It is a very beautiful and evergreen shrub originating from China: it is a slow-growing plant, with glossy and coriaceous foliage preferably to be cultivated in open ground; throughout the spring numerous small pink or white star flowers bloom at the apex of the branches. It has to be placed in a well-lit place, in the sun or in partial shade; it prefers rich and fertile soils. It suffers from excessive humidity. It tolerates both drought and frost quite well, and it can resist in the garden even if temperatures fall below -10/-15° C.
Exuberant and unusual, the Penstemons bloom throughout the summer, bringing joy and color even when the other plants, for the oppressive heat, take a break. It originates from North America and it belongs to a particularly small variety that grows in the mountains on stony ground, very close to the ground. The plant forms several spikes, which are covered with many small flowers similar to the bells: blue, purple and red. It needs full sun and it is resistant to cold.
The succulents absorb the water when it abundantly rains and they accumulate water so that they can resist in periods of drought. They are plants suitable for dry weather. The succulents don’t need a lot of water; on the contrary a lot of water can damage them. It’s better not to keep them in sunlight but in a lit place, in a well-drained soil.
