The sunflower, also known as the Mexican flower, the Peruvian, or American chrysanthemum, is native to North America, more specifically Texas. Apart from the very sunny, tall, and golden yellow variety of sunflowers, they have extremely tasty seeds that are used in various culinary preparations and also in the food oil manufacturing industry. There are varieties of garden sunflowers, extraordinarily beautiful, that resemble daisies and have wide-ranging colors. These annual varieties of tiny sunflowers would make your garden look great and they are also very easy to care for. The flowers appear from summer to fall, and each flower lasts between eight and ten weeks.

Portulaca grandiflora has its place of origin in the hot and dry fields of northern Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil and belongs to the Portulacaceae family. The plant has cylindrical stems, with a tarred appearance, very branched and green in color, but in the sun, they acquire reddish specks. Portulaca grandiflora has succulent and cylindrical leaves. The flowers are variously colored (white, yellow, pink, red, purple, and cyclamen), they have five petals (single flowers), with many yellow stamens. You can plant the portulaca to obtain floral carpets on the edges of the sidewalks, or between concrete slabs, when arranging the rocks or on stony areas, near curbs or stone walls, but also in planters or hanging pots. In any case, you can enjoy the portulaca flowers from June to October.

The petunias are the basic members of the Solanaceae family. Originally from South America (Argentina and Brazil), the petunias conquered Europe – and not just Europe, relatively recently – towards the beginning of the 19th century. The petunias are among the most spontaneous and beautiful flowering plants that are extremely resistant and very unpretentious. The petunias are the flowers of a thousand colors, blooming from the beginning of summer until the middle of autumn. One of the great qualities of the petunias is its diversity of colors that are extremely varied and pleasant – from white, pink, yellow, red, violet, blue, or numerous combinations of these colors, but also the repeated flowering of the plant with minimum requirements.

Plant the dahlia on rich, well-drained soil with lots of organic matter. Apply water-soluble fertilizer monthly or twice during the plant’s vegetation period. Avoid using a high nitrogen fertilizer as the plant might have fewer flowers and fewer leaves. The flowering period of the dahlias is in summer and lasts until late autumn.

Begonia’s origin is from tropical and subtropical climates.
