Just like bell peppers, to which it is related, the capsicum belongs to the Solanaceae family. In spite of being native to the Americas, it is nowadaysy cultivated throughout the entire world. It includes almost 50 species of plants, both perennial and annual. The plants look like shrubs with light-green leaves which can vary in height from 40 to 80 cm depending on the variety. The plant’s resistance to cold and hot climate also depends on the variety. Fructification starts during the summer and lasts until autumn.
It is a particularly rustic plant in the Onagraceae family and it originates from central and southern America. It has oval and deep-green leaves and it produces beautiful flowers with red calyces and white and purple petals, collected in tufts of three or four. Some varieties produce berries, similar to cherries, which are dark-red and edible.
The potunia (from the fusion of the words “pot” and “petunia”) is a hybrid born in Germany from the recent botanical experimentation on the more common petunia. As its “mother”, it is hailing from Central and South America and it belongs to the Solanaceae family. It can be recognised for its more compact and rounded shape, for the much more abundant blooming and for the several colours, which are more intense and in some cases shaded, of its characteristic trumpet flowers. Even the leaves, hairy and slightly sticky as in petunias, are different because of their scent.
Sunflower is a plant in the family Asteraceae, hailing from central and southern America (Peru and Mexico) and widespread in Europe since the Middle Age. This plant, which owes its name to its characteristic heliotropic behavior in which the inflorescence is always oriented towards the sun, has a long, sturdy stem with large and wrinkled leaves and giant inflorescences with yellow petals and a dark inner disc. In addition to being an ornamental plant, it is extensively used for the production of vegetable oil from its seeds.
It belongs to the family Campanulaceae and it originates from Africa and Asia. It is a perennial cultivated plant, especially in Europe nowadays. Thanks to its rich and long lasting blooming, with electric blue flowers, it is used for the borders. It looks like a thick bush with small and dark green leaves. It produces peculiar light blue little flowers.
The Surfinia is a hybrid that was born in Japan from the botanical experimentation on the Petunia. Therefore, with its “mother”, the Surfinia shares the Central/Southern American geographical origin and the belonging to the family Solanacee. It is different from the “mother” for the hanging shape and for the dimensions and the colors of the flowers that are bigger than it. The foliage is covered by down and it is slightly sticky; the characteristic trumpet inflorescence blooms only at the end of the hanging branches.
