A blossoming vine in your garden
The flowering liana is able to completely transform the appearance of your garden plot, wrapping a wall, a fence or part of the house (for example, a terrace or an attic).
Kampsis - a melliferous blooming liana
This magnificent plant is impressive not onlyabundant flowering, which lasts for more than half of the summer, but also with beautiful bright foliage (each leaf is complex and consists of 9-13 small ones). Dome-shaped flowers (they come in all shades of red, orange, raspberry), the abundance of which will amaze you this flowering vine, gather in inflorescences, which, in turn, are crowned by long graceful shoots. For one summer, the branches of the campsis are able to grow 2 m. To have fruits, cross-pollination is necessary. On the mellifluousness of the campsis should be said separately - because of the seductive aroma on which hordes of bees and other insects fly together, it is not recommended that this flowering liana grow near the windows of houses.
- Do not overmoist the roots of this plant. And even better - find out in advance how high the ground water is on your site. This will need to be taken into account when watering.
- Protect the campsis from the wind, provide it with good lighting.
- Take care of the fertility of the soil (kampsis is unpretentious, but the excess of nutrients in the soil this plant will perceive as a signal to a more lush and prolonged flowering).
- At the end of winter, trim the old faded shoots. At the same time, you can take care of giving the desired species a plant.
Kampsis is a pearl of vertical gardening.
Hoya, or wax ivy
It is impossible to enumerate blooming lianas for cottages andnot to mention hoyu. Its creeping stems can reach 6 m in length. In addition, few perennial blooming lianas have such a growth rate: in the spring hoyi shoots grow by a meter a week! The dark green glossy leaves are covered with whitish waxen divorces - this feature and contributed to the fact that the plant began to be called in the people wax ivy. Fragrant flowers, pinkish in the middle, are collected in umbellate inflorescences. The older the plant becomes, the more luxuriant and abundant it blooms. Hoye needs a support. As such, a tree, a gazebo or an arch will do. In the cold regions of Russia, unfortunately, hoya can only grow in a greenhouse or a greenhouse, as the liana is thermophilic. In the middle belt, flowering will be meager. Watering hoyu should be abundant, and in autumn - only a few days after the soil becomes dry. Remember, the leaves of this plant can provoke skin irritation, and the scent of its flowers is a headache! It is convenient to propagate hoyu by stem stems, as well as by cuttings.
