On this page, you will find more information on the various plants that we grow, along with an explanation of the symbols that you will find on the label or on the sleeve.
The Schlumbergera, also known in Brazil as Flor de Maio (May flower). This is actually a succulent, but a blooming succulent. The Schlumbergera blooms when the days are short and has lovely red, white, prink or orange blossoms. They originally come from Brazil, where they bloom very modestly on tree trunks. If you take good care of the Schlumbergera, the plant can continue to bloom for years. The plant that never dies!
A robust potcarnation that you can enjoy for a long time, because this plant blooms from May to October. The name Dianthus is derived from two words: the Greek word Dios (itself derived from ‘Zeus’) and Athos (‘flower’) and means ‘god flower’ or ‘divine flower’. This plant is suitable for a border, but also looks lovely in a pot on a patio or balcony. The fragrant Dianthus prefers to be placed in the garden in a sunny and dry place. The more sun, the richer the flower blooms.
The Hibiscus originally came from China and Southeast Asia. The Hibiscus, also known as ‘Chinese rose’, is a typical summer plant. The beautiful, impressively large flower makes it a particularly colourful plant for on the balcony or patio. Outside in the sun, the Hibiscus will continually delight you with these beautiful flowers.
Although this richly flowering, colourful plant loves full sun, it can also tolerate bright shade. If you make sure the soil is kept moist, then it will surprise you over and over again with new blooms. The dead flowers fall off by themselves, making it an easy plant to care for.
This small, compact growing plant is used mainly as a houseplant, but in the summer, with adequate heat, the plant also does fine outdoors on the patio or in pots and flower boxes. Exacum, also known as ‘Persian violet’, originated in Socotra, an island just below Yemen. What is surprising about this plant is that it has a wonderfully fragrant flower that makes people happy!
