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.
It is an evergreen plant originating from the mountainous areas of the Usa. Flowers bloom during the spring on trunks at the center of the fleshy foliage, collected in a dense little rose: they are striated, small, beautiful and they have pink, red and orange shades. It belongs to the family Portulaceae. It is cultivated because of its wonderful blooming both in the pot and in the rocky gardens. It blooms during the spring, it prefers sunny locations and it does not need abundant watering.
The carnation is a herbaceous and perennial plant in the family Caryophyllaceae and it has an uncertain origin. It is assumed that it originates from the mediterranean region but there are many varieties hailing from other parts of Asia and Africa as well. The bush has narrow and elongated greyish/green leaves. The plant produces the peculiar flowers with five petals, single or in bunches, the appearance of which can change considerably depending on the variety.
Among the most widespread and cultivated plants in the world, the carnation flower, typically rippled and variously coloured (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.
In Italy the chrysanthemum blooms at the end of october and for this reason it is associated to All Saints’ Day. Actually, however, it has traditionally been associated to positive values, and its name stands as a proof to this: it comes from ancient Greek and literally translates to “golden flower”. It is a genus in the family Compositae, and most varieties bloom in autumn, from late October to early November. They prefer to live in a warm-temperate environment.
The Wax flower is an evergreen shrub that originates from Australia belonging to the family Myrtaceae. It has needle-shaped, perfumed and light green little leaves. It produces a lot of little flowers with five petals with a waxy consistence (that’s why it’s called Wax flower) that, depending on the variety, are white, pink, lilac, purple. Thanks to the resistance to drought and to the long lasting of the blooming, the wax flower is also cultivated to produce cut flowers.
