Chrysanthemum


 

 

In the winter :
Cineraria Venezia (Senecio Hybridus). This multicoloured potted plant blossoms in the winter and early spring and is grown from seeds in which all the good qualities have been brought together. During a cold period this plant flowers early.

 

Pansies (Violaceae). This family knows approximately four hundred kinds which are found in moderate regions. Pansies are used as the base for many perfumes. They even use them to make candy. When cooked the young leaves are edible and contain many vitamins. The petals can be used as decoration for meals.
Daisies (Bellis Perennis, meaning Beautiful or Remaining). The daisy can be found all over the world (with the exception of the tropics), in grasslands, hillsides and forest land up to a height of 2400 meters. They can serve a great purpose as a healthy decoration on salads or in a soup. The flower buds are even used as cappers.


Spring and Summer:
The standing Geranium (Pelargonium Zonale) and the hanging Geranium (Pelargonium Peltatum), derived from pelargos = stork's bill. This family knows 220 to 280 different kinds, most of which originally appeared in Namibia and South Africa. What we use in our flower boxes originate from South Africa. The aromatic substance of some of the Pelargoniums is widely used in perfume.

Garden and Balcony plants:
Most of these plants originate from the tropics or sub tropics and are therefore vulnerable to night frost and are best put out after late spring.

Autumn:
Chrysanthemum (Originated from Greek: 'chrys-' : gold and '-anthemon' : flower). The chrysanthemum is the national symbol of Japan. The emperor's seal is a stylized chrysanthemum and the country named a knighthood after the flower, The Order of the Chrysanthemum. This richly blossoming terrace plant has its origins in Asia. Even in autumn they are readily available, due to the fact that this plant needs less than 11 hours of daylight a day over a period of 6 weeks.
