Flowering plants

The plant world is a tribute to the evolution and creative power of nature; if in fact we humans are among the greatest examples of how powerful the evolutionary process is (because we have objectively reached peaks of perfection in some aspects), plants are absolutely no less, as they have managed to develop from a single primordial specimen and therefore to adapt to populate the entire planet Earth: there are plants that live in water and in the depths of the sea, there are plants that resist the scorching Sahara desert, there are others that are not afraid of high mountain snows and others yet that do not root in the ground but climb trees! In the diversification that we can see in the plant world, there are also cases of plants without fruit, or plants without flowers, or even plants without leaves; behind each of these phenomena, even if they appear strange, there is a very specific reason, such as for example a plant that does not produce flowers is almost always a plant torn from its natural habitat, therefore living in conditions that do not allow it to develop flowers. In general, however, flowering plants are the plants most appreciated by man, especially when it comes to decorating a garden or a house.

Flowers in the garden


The garden is a precious place for many people, that is, it is a place that many of us want to reach because it manages to give an almost incomparable serenity; in fact, having a private garden at home is even better than going to a public garden, even if perhaps very close to home, because it still has restrictions that the private garden would not have: our home garden never has closing times, it is furnished exactly as we want and there is no plant that we do not like or that annoys us for some of its characteristics, it cannot but there be no person we do not like and above all there will be no one else but us, which is perfect for our relaxation. Clearly, in order for the garden to have the greatest positive influence on us, it must be guaranteed the greatest splendor and this can only be achieved with flowers. They are the most beautiful way of nature to demonstrate vitality, through intense but never excessive colors and a perfume that captures us inside, making us feel pampered by the surrounding nature. In fact it is spectacular if only we imagine sitting comfortably in the center of our garden and seeing ourselves enchanted by the beauty of the flowers and captivated by their delicate scent.

The broom

Although a few lines ago we said that due to different habitats from the original there are plants that do not produce flowers, they are very few and most of them do indeed. One of the most famous and loved ones to have in the garden is certainly the broom: this plant has a shrub character, that is, it does not look like the classic plant with a woody stem and branches, but has a sturdy stem but not so much to can be considered a tree and above all it has thinner branches that start a lot from the base of the plant. Despite this, the broom can reach a height of three meters if it is found with fertile soil and in a climatically correct setting, even if the average height at which we can find it is between one and a half and two meters.

Cultivation and other info

The broom is very common in small and large gardens precisely because of the beautiful color it has and which it manages to give to the surrounding environment; moreover, it is not a difficult plant to grow, because it tolerates both high and low temperatures very well, furthermore, exposure to full sunlight is not a problem and therefore it is perfect for placing it anywhere in the garden. The only thing it needs is a deep soil (its roots love to go deep, vice versa the plant begins to suffer) and very well drained, because the broom does not want water stagnation; this indication can also be used for irrigation, which must be rare and only when the soil is totally dry. For example in winter, when it rains from time to time and periods of drought are rare, the plant manages to survive very well by «feeding» on rainfall and therefore does not need to be watered. For those who have spotted a friend’s broom and would like to have a «son», it is good to know that the plant can be reproduced by cuttings in the summer (ie by detaching a branch and putting it on the ground to make it produce roots) while in spring seeds from the previous season can be planted. In fact, the broom, after having produced the flowers, replaces them with inedible and oblong fruits, inside which we find a large number of seeds. it is good to know that the plant can be reproduced by cuttings in the summer period (ie by detaching a branch and putting it in the ground to produce roots) while in spring the seeds from the previous season can be planted.
