Flowering plants – Tips for my garden


red flowering plants

If your passion is red, there is a wide variety of plants for you. These include Centranthus ruber, a perennial or even annual herbaceous plant depending on the species. It has smooth, bluish-gray leaves. Its flowers are small and numerous, grouped and of a more or less intense red color. A tree with very beautiful flowers is the Japanese quince, a thorny shrub with flowers of a delicate shade of red. The bush is similar to true fruit quince and produces fruit similar to quince apples. In a shady area, Astilbe can be planted, very showy due to the feathery flowers arranged in panicles. They look beautiful when placed in flower beds, but are also scattered in groups. An evergreen climbing shrub is Clianthus, also called parrot’s beak because of the characteristic shape of its flowers which fall in the form of a pendulum. The beauty of its flowers, however, contrasts with the delicacy of the plant which does not like frost.

yellow flowers

Among the trees with colorful flowers, one cannot forget about the Mimosa, whose inflorescences offer a yellow sea to the eye. The flowers, indeed, are small, but they have very long stamens which give them a soft and feathery appearance. Similar to mimosa flowers are those of goldenrod, a shrub that adapts very well to all climates and does not require special care. In full sun, even in flower beds, you can place Escolzie, perennials that produce yellow flowers vaguely resembling poppies, but more robust. Among the shrubs, we cannot forget the broom, rustic and majestic, with its golden yellow flowers which develop over almost the entire length of the branches. Kerria inflorescences are the same color, which prefers a light position, but not in direct sunlight.

flowering indoor plants

Indoor plants decorate and enliven the rooms; those with flowers fulfill these functions with much more joy. In fact, they exist with flowers of different colors and which “dress” the house even in the cold seasons. Among these we remember the Amarallide, a bulbous plant with winter inflorescences; the flowers are thrombiform, fragrant, clustered, white, red or pale pink with yellowish-white veins. Very easy to maintain is the begonia, which owes its wide distribution to the practicality of its handling and the beauty of its flowers, small and of various colors. Sapphire flowers, scientific name Browallia, are seedlings with blue-purple star flowers, the color of sapphire. House Kalanchoes will fill the rooms with yellow and red: a beauty that requires very little care and not necessarily a green thumb. Saintpaulia or African violet, on the other hand, has white, pink, purple or blue flowers and blooms for several weeks.

Among white flowering plants for the garden, one can give preference to Rincospermum, the so-called False Jasmine. A climbing shrub, it has very thick and leathery leaves. The flowers are grouped. The popular name is due to the white color, the shape and the very intense aroma reminiscent of real jasmine. How not to mention the bush roses, renowned for their magnificent flowering from May to November. To be exuberant, they need fertilizers and phytosanitary products to fight, above all, against aphids. If you intend to focus on fruit trees, a valid opportunity is the apple tree. In this way, in addition to having exquisite fruits, you will be able to enjoy a frank flowering in the spring. Finally, why not consider the white geranium? Or the Ivy variety, always with white flowers? The latter in particular it is characterized by glossy, drooping leaves that form lush flowering cascades. It is not easy to choose between the different genres, but you can surely orient yourself according to your personal tastes and needs. Whatever happens, we will have a flower garden!
