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.

Schlumbergera

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!

Dianthus

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.

Kalanchoë

The Kalanchoe is a small and tough succulent with characteristic brightly coloured flowers. These flowers are available in various colours and stand out beautifully against the shiny green leaf. This ‘timeless classic’ not only does well as a houseplant, but also feels perfectly at home on the balcony or patio during the summer. The plant also likes to be outside when the days are longer and the nights are shorter, and will bloom with even greater conviction than when it’s placed indoors.

Exacum Affine

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!
