The olive is the typical evergreen plant of the agriculture in the mediterranean regions. It grows very slowly and its main feature is its longevity. There are many varieties of olive trees that are continuously monitored for their ability to withstand the cold during the winter. The ideal climate for cultivation is a mild climate with minimum temperatures not lower than 8/10° C below zero. Its peculiar fruits start growing at the beginning of the autumn.
Its common name is Rhyncospermum but it could also be called Jasmine. It is a climbing shrub belonging to the family Apocynaceae. It prefers full sun zones in which it creates very vigorous branches and inflorescences. If it is preferred to lengthen the branches, compromising the level of the blooming, it is necessary to place the plant in a semi-shaded area.
It is an evergreen shrub that originates from Central America. It has thin, green, fleshy and branched trunks. When it grows it assumes a prostrate shape. It belongs to the Plantaginaceae family. It fears the cold. Thanks to its hanging shape it looks like a waterfall of flowers. It needs sun and regular watering.
It originates from Asia and it belongs to the Hamamelidaceae family. The Loropetalum has a densely branched stem with mainly horizontal development. In some years they can reach 2-3 meters in height. Both the emission of the leaves and the blooming in this plant take place quite early: this makes it doubly valuable as it gives color and liveliness at a time while the other plants are still almost bare.
The Ortensia is a perennial shrub belonging to the family Hydrangeaceae and it originates from East Asia (China and Japan) and from North America. It is known throughout the world for its extraordinary blooming; it has large, dark green and dentate leaves and it produces a big balloon inflorescence (with a diameter up to 20 cm) with many small flowers of different colors, from white to pink, to lilac up to blue. The coloring of the flowers can be influenced by the reaction of the plant to the type of soil; greater acidity leads to flowers tending to blue, while in basic or alkaline soils there will be flowers tending to pink.
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.
The Polygala Myrtifolia (variety that is better to cultivate in the greenhouse) is an evergreen shrub belonging to the family Polygalaceae, hybridized by crossing species originating in Southern Africa. It has a basically bushy and round shape with a very thick vegetation. Thanks to its flexibility it can easily be cut in order to have different shapes (pyramid, espalier). Its leaves are similar to the myrtle’s ones but bigger and of light green color. It produces lilac flowers collected in bunches at the apex of the branches.
