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.

It belongs to the family Ranunculaceae. The Ranunculus is a simple and elegant flower originating from Asia. It is highly sought for its flowering period which is one of the first that blooms: it blooms in late winter or in early spring. The most common buttercups on the market are the “orientalis”. They generally prefer damp environments and their petals vary from white to intense yellow.
It belongs to the Violaceae family and it originates from Europe and America. It is a small and evergreen plant known for its white, yellow, orange, red, lilac, violet or speckled bicolor flowers. It is a green light bush with little and curved leaves. The shades of the colors are different and there are varieties with petals that have a dark spot inside (“Pansy” or “Saint Joseph violet”, since the shades remind the ones of the cape of the Saint). In the mild climate zones the blooming could be forced and it is in autumn until winter.
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.
