Lantana is a perennial shrub in the family Verbenaceae and it originates from south-central America. It has rough, dentate, deep-green leaves which, when broken, give off an unmistakable scent. The Sellowiana variety has a hanging shape and smaller leaves. Lantana bears throughout summer tubular flowers gathered in corymbs, which are characterized by the pecularity of changing shades during the blooming, thus resulting in being multi-color (although there are monochromatic varieties as well). When the blooming finishes, the lantana grows poisonous berries which become edible once they are ripe.

The Wisteria is a climbing plant belonging to family Fabaceae an it originates from China and Japan. It has light green leaves and it develops wrapping on any support, literally colonizing railings and pergolas. It is characterized by an abundant and cluster hanging blooming of lilac /purple color (20 cm) that blooms along the entire length of the branches and releases a pleasant fragrance.
The lemon is a fruit plant originating from India and Indo-China but nowadays it is common all over the world (the Mediterranean and tropical regions of South America are those with the greatest production). It belongs to the family Rutaceae and it has oval leaves that are darker from one side and brighter from the other side. It has different shapes from the small tree to the espalier. It produces perfumed and white little flowers, with violet borders from which the characteristic round (or oblong) fruits are born, green when unripe and yellow when ripe, with an unmistakable sour taste. It is used in the food industry where jams, infusions and/or liqueurs are produced from its fruits.
Eucalyptus (from Greek “εὖ”, “good” and “καλύπτω”, “to hide”, in reference to the fact that the petals hide the rest of the flower) is an evergreen arboreal plant hailing from Tasmania, Australia, New Guinea and from Oceania in general. It is a genus with around 600 species in the family Mirtacee. Introduced in Italy at the beginning of the 19th century, the Eucalyptus is appreciated for its therapeutic and curative properties; the blooming periods, however, are rather long: in particular, the globulus variety blooms between winter and spring and the camaldulensis variety during summer.
Euryops is a perennial shrub in the family Compositae and it originates from Southern Africa. It is characterized by an abundant blooming which occurs during winter. It is a very thick bush with silver leaves and it produces big yellow flowers similar to large daisies. It can be used in order to decorate gardens and flowerbeds, creating a voluminous yellow pot which can brighten up the coldest months.
It is an evergreen shrub originating from the temperate regions in Asia and in South America (variety “Capensis” or “Auricolata”) and it belongs to the Plumbaginaceae family. It has a basically climbing shape, it has small, oval and light green leaves and it produces typical light blue flowers (for this reason it is usually known as “Blue sky jasmine”; there is also a variety with red flowers, “Plumbago Indica” or “Rosea”) collected in big spikes.
The genus Passiflora (which literally means passion flower) includes hundreds of species of climbing plants and shrubs, all hailing from South America. There are over five hundred species of evergreen plants in the genus. Minimum winter cultivation temperature must not be under 5 degrees and a strong brightness must be guaranteed in order to facilitate the blooming. Watering is fundamental: it should be constant and frequent throughout the year, except during the winter, especially when particurarly cold. Mostly climbing species are cultivated in Europe, and the most widespread variety is certainly the Passiflora Cerulea, with the typical white and light blue flowers. The flowers bloom in sequence throughout the summer, they attract butterflies and bees, and during the summer they give way to small oval-shaped berries, edible in some species.
