The Marigold is a little perennial plant cultivated as an annual plant. In order to be cultivated it needs sunny places. The marigold is relatively resistant to cold but with low winter temperatures the leaves and the aerial part of the plant dries up: from late autumn, the marigold blooms again in late spring. The blooming begins in late winter, with orange-yellow flowers.
The Rhodanthemum is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the family Asteraceae. It is cultivated both in pots and in open ground. It is used to make gardens and flowerbeds more colorful. It prefers sunny positions, loose and well-drained soils; it withstands temperatures of -10 degrees. Watering shouldn’t be very frequent and it’s necessary to do it just when the substratum is dry.
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 belongs to the family Geraniaceae and it originates from Southern Africa. The Geranium is one of the most spread perennial plants in Europe and mostly used in order to decorate balconies. It contains a very high number of varieties and it looks like a bush with light green leaves, circle, hairy and fleshy, characterized by a darker inner zone (hence the name “zonal”). The flowers are very colored (white, pink, red, lilac, purple) with five petals collected in “umbrellas” at the end of the stems. The varieties “Edera” and “Parigino” stand out because of their almost hanging shape, their shape and the color of the leaves, smaller, curled and with brighter colors, as well as for the petals which are also smaller than the common. These hybrid varieties are also more resistant to adverse climatic conditions and drought.
It belongs to the family Asteraceae and it originates from Central America (Peru and Mexico) but it has spread in Europe since the Middle Age. The Sunflower, which owes its name to its characteristic heliotropic behavior (the inflorescence is always oriented towards the sun), has a long robust stem with large and wrinkled leaves and giant inflorescences with yellow petals and dark disc. In addition to being an ornamental plant, its use is known 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 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.
