Arum nicknamed “Aaron’s rod”

When you envision this plant, try to remember a nicely-known calla, a greenhouse plant with big flowers. A flower is composed of one big white petal (veil), wrapping up an rectangular ear. Arum’s (Àrisaema triphyllum) inflorescence is the identical. An ear of yellow bouquets is coated with a veil, not white, but multicolored – light-inexperienced, mahogany or striped. A plant’s height is about 40 cm, it is blossoming in May-June, and by autumn a veil fades and falls off, opening an ear with a shiny-pink, toxic berries. Arum demands a moist fertile soil in a shady spot. It appears to be great on a bank of a tiny reservoir.

Pumpkin and co.

They are this sort of weighty-weights! However, figures of many builds can be located among a awesome gourd spouse and children. With a slender waistline and in rich styles, incredibly prolonged, like cucumber, and hanging on props, like pears. The most spectacular specimens grow on super fertile compost storage barrows in the corners of backyard-plots, wherefrom they are rolled, not even brought, residence in autumn. Each year – we meet new models: turban, beret, cranium-cap. A all-natural, quaint ornamental sample also impresses: one 50 % is eco-friendly, and one more – yellow.
All pumpkins are mild- and warmth-loving. Seedlings are prick off in a household and brought to a back garden in the end of May possibly-beginning of July. The finest locations for decorative pumpkins – are lattice fences, columns, arbors.

Early morning-glory – a flower for “larks”

Jolly little gramophones of this great convolvulus can be seen in numerous gardens. Its time is early morning. It opens its charming flowers with the very first sun beams, and by 10 am they are now light. A lot of types of morning-glory are replenished by new hues every single yr. On a photograph you can see actually a “stylish doings” – a stripped flower (Ipomoea Tie Dye). Stripped carnations have normally been in fashion at all tames, and now strips on irises, marigolds, tulips, petunias and bluebells are trendy. You can prepare an helpful union of creepers in your backyard, for case in point, morning-glory and pumpkin, due to the fact they each have the exact same demands for escalating (both plants are Southern ones).


We are made use of to see begonia on our window, not in a back garden. A variety of types of this flower have been decorating our houses at all tames, astonishing us with a selection of colors and quaint cuts of leaves. In a back garden, begonia is a summertime guest. It can stay the full summer months in a flower-mattress, and in autumn it will return to its “winter season condominium” – window-sill. In a garden begonia prefers shady destinations. Because of to unique coloring, it seems excellent on a compact pedestal – on a smaller stump, stone or lower whatnot. (Âågonia Chocolate Creme)

A thorny huge

This first biennial plant, referred to as dipsacus (Dipsacus fullonum) reaches 1,5 in top. During the fist calendar year of life it types a big rosette of leaves with thorns at sides. And the next summer months a stalk grows from the midst of leaves, and it starts twining, forming a candelabrum-like plant. On the edge of each stalk an authentic flower seems, which strikes with the point that a bud in the type of oval cone is protected with a corbel of sensitive lilac flowers. Dipsacus fades bit by bit, leaving a stunning thorny cone, which can serve as an great substance for wintertime bunches.

Ornamental cabbage

It appeared on our flower beds fairly not long ago. In any case, this unusual plant has turn into stylish not so extended ago, when a lot of its types appeared. From time to time passers-by stop at a fence at a decline – is this lacy creature just a cabbage? Certainly, cabbage, but not normal, but decorative a person. There are specimens, resembling huge flowers, like they are in lacy jabots. Compact rosettes are also fulfilled, 10 cm in diameter. And there are also serious “substantial followers” of feather-like leaves, forming mighty vegetation of 1 m height. All decorative cabbages are hybrids. So, do not test to get seeds: hybrids do not transmit their qualities by correct of succession. (Osaka Pink u White Peacock)
