Garden plants with flowers
Generally the various species belong to the large genus of angiosperms and have an ancient origin, dating back even to the Cretaceous era. The characteristic of this type of plant is precisely the flower, which differentiates them from plants producing only seeds, or gymnosperms. They have managed to spread exponentially thanks to their resistance and their ability to adapt to the different climates of the geographical areas. Angiosperms are the most common in nature also because they have a shorter fertilization period than gymnosperms. Depending on the variety they can be divided into large groups, including the woody types of the Austrobaileyales, the Nymphaeales with more than ninety species and the Amborella shrub. In addition to these, there is the very large group of Magnolidaee, which include for example laurel and magnolia, even if their total number far exceeds ten thousand species. Other aromatic flowering plants are known as Chloranthales. All species of plants with flowers are subject to the same pathologies, to which particular attention should be paid. It will be first of all a good thing to prevent the stagnation of liquids on the roots and on the stems, avoiding an excessive administration of water and the consequent process of marking; if this is already in progress, specific fungicides must be used. The ideal soil for planting plants must therefore be moist, rich in nutrients and well drained. Another pathology worthy of attention is that caused by the oido mushroom, which usually affects small shoots and tender leaves, leaving a whitish patina on them; also in this case the best remedy is a good fungicide, to be administered however, in a preventive measure, at the beginning of the spring season.
Weigelia is a shrub native to the Asian continent and belonging to the coprifoliaceae family. The flowers, bright pink on the outside and milky white on the inside, are bell-shaped and are born on the top of the new twigs at the beginning of the spring season. This flowering plant needs a lot of space to be able to develop in all its beauty, since it can even reach four meters in height. His ideal accommodation is in an area exposed to direct sunlight. Being a rather resistant species, it will adapt to the various types of climate present in the geographical area where it will be cultivated. Despite this, it is necessary to pay close attention to the quality of the soil, which must always be kept well drained and humid; it is therefore advisable to water it regularly, especially in the summer season, when the water evaporates faster. Once a year, the Weigelia will be properly pruned, removing the dry or rotten twigs and adjusting the crown. The soil, in addition to being moist, must be enriched with precious nutrients, for example made by fertilizing with mature manure or specific humus, at least once a year, and always in the spring season. As for the watering, a weekly administration will be fine, doubled if the temperature is very high. The multiplication is carried out by cuttings: to proceed, one must be cut in the lateral part of the plant, so as not to affect the flowering, then transplant it into a soil to which a fair amount of fresh loam and sand in parts will have been added equal. The definitive planting, whether in the garden or in a pot, should only be done in the spring season.
