It is an annual plant belonging to the family Brassicaceae and originating from Europe. It has an erect shape, thick and green/grayish foliage. The sterns hold the beautiful flowers with curled, perfumed and brightly colored petals, collected in spikes. It is a very spread plant in the Uk where it is traditionally used in order to decorate the external cottages’ walls.
The common name Calla indicates some species of rhizomatous plants, originating from Africa. The Callas are very common as potted plants. It is possible to have more bloomings from the same rhizome, always better from year to year. They are grown in large pots, with a good rich and soft topsoil, so that the large rhizomes can easily develop a good root system. Unfortunately it is not possible to indicate a strict rule for watering the callas, as the outdoor or home climate has a great influence on the water needs of the plants. To allow the plants the winter vegetative rest, as soon as the foliage begins to turn yellow, it is necessary to interrupt the watering.
The Euphorbia pulcherrima, known as Poinsettia or Christmas Star, is an ornamental plant originating from Mexico, where it spontaneously grows and where, in the wild, it can even reach a height between two and four meters. It belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae. It is a typically photoperiodic or brevidiurnal plant; for this reason it blooms during the winter when the days are shorter.
It is a herbaceous perennial plant originating from Asia. It produces a basal rosette with big, green, curved, with wavy edges, rigid and compact leaves. These Primulas are very used as houseplants, especially during the winter; they are often used as annual plants, sometimes in the shaded flowerbeds as well. The blooming is very prolonged, especially if the withered flowers are removed.
More than thousand species belong to the family Begoniaceae that originates from tropical and subtropical zones. The ideal cultivation temperature is around 15° throughout the year. This plant like intense light but not direct sun. During the winter temperatures shouldn’t be below 13° C but they still have to be kept in a cool environment. Begonias should be often watered on the basis of the external temperature, taking care, however, to dry superficially the topsoil between one watering and another. During the winter waterings should be drastically reduced and it should be watered just when the topsoil surface is dry.
