The carnation is a herbaceous and perennial plant belonging to the family Caryophyllaceae and it has an uncertain origin. It is assumed that it originates from the mediterranean regions but there are many varieties originating from Asia and Africa. The bush has narrow and elongated green/grey leaves. The plant produces the peculiar flowers with five petals, single or in bunches with disparate appearances, depending on the variety.
Among the most widespread and cultivated plants in the world, the carnation flower, typically rippled and variously colored (red, pink, white, yellow, violet, speckled) has taken on different meanings in popular symbolism in different countries. Thanks to its delicate fragrance, it is also used, once dried, to make pout-pourri.

It belongs to the family Scrophulariaceae and it originates from Africa and Southern Europe. It is a perennial plant, usually cultivated as annual with hanging shape. It has elongated, light green and delicate leaves. It produces small flowers with a trilobal upper part and a bilobed lower part with many shades from white to yellow, red, lilac up to blue, sometimes even in two contrasting colors (white, blue, yellow, red, etc.). The flowering is very abundant and it is pleasantly perfumed as well.
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.
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. With its “mother” it just shares the geographical origin from Central and South America and the belonging to the Solanaceae family. It differs from its “mother” for the more compact and rounded shape, for the much more abundant blooming and for the several colors, more intense and in some cases shaded, of its characteristic trumpet flowers. Even the leaves, hairy and slightly sticky as the Petunias, are different because they are perfumed.
It is a herbaceous and perennial plant belonging to the family Asteraceae and it originates from Southern Africa. It has a dark green bush, sometimes with silver leaves and it produces a peculiar flower similar to a giant daisy with bright colors, yellow, orange or pink, with darker shades on the petals (“Big Kiss” variety). A peculiarity of the gazania is that the flowers shut at nighttime and reopen the next day.
