The Gypsophila is a perennial plant belonging to the family Caryophyllaceae and originating from Europe and Western Asia. It looks like a bush and on all the length of the thin stems it produces many white or pink flowers. Because of its compact shape it is commonly called “mist” and, in addition to being an ornamental plant for borders, it is used to make brides’ bouquets (another common name is, as a matter of fact, “Bride’s Voile”).
It is a herbaceous and perennial plant in the family Asteraceae hailing from southern Africa. It appears as a bush with dark-green or sometimes even silver leaves and it produces a peculiar flower which resembles a giant, brightly coloured daisy. It can be yellow, orange or pink, with darker shades on the petals (“Big Kiss” variety). A peculiarity of the gazania is that the flowers shut at nighttime and open again the following morning.
It certainly is the most common plant in the countryside and in the meadows around the world. The daisy is a perennial plant belonging to Asteraceae family and it originates from the Canary Islands. It has a thick and a well branched bush and produces the classical flower with the yellow central disc and white petals (there are as well hybrid varieties with colored petals, yellow, pink or light blue). Thanks to its abundant and long lasting blooming it is ideal to decorate borders and gardens.
The Cuphea, hailing from Mexico, Peru and central-southern America, produces peculiar, long-lasting, tubular flowers which can be either red or pink: mostly cultivated as an outdoor plant, it has the appearance of a very thick and decorative bush about 80 cm high (30 cm for dwarf varieties). Its blooming is ideal to give a special feeling to a summer terrace. It fears extreme temperatures (both low and high) and it needs abundant watering during summer.
Freesia is a genus of herbaceous plants hailing from southern Africa which includes about fifteen botanical species. They all produce small round corms. It is suitable for Mediterranean climates and is rather sensitive to cold. Every single bulb produces a small tuft of ribbon-like, erect, fairly rigid, light-green leaves; from the center of the leaves during the summer a thin and erect stem develops, bearing numerous small trumpet-shaped flowers. It blooms during the spring and it needs direct sunlight.
The Lisianthus (or Eustoma) is a young plant: it was discovered in the Usa in the XIX century and transported to Europe at the beginning of the ‘900. It belongs to the family Gentianaceae. It is cultivated for ornamental purposes in pots and for the trade of cut flowers that are very appreciated for their simple and elegant design; it is characterized by slow growth and it blooms throughout the summer.
