Favorite of bees and butterflies

Features of culture

A few years ago, I bought a bag of cotton wool seeds just out of curiosity and did not expect that this plant would soon become a decoration of my garden.

Of all the seeds that were in the package, I managed to grow only one plant, and I planted it in an area open to the sun. The cottonwood grew slowly, in a year it stretched out only twenty centimeters, and bloomed in the second year with purple flowers with a pleasant smell.

Every year this plant adds one or two shoots, so I appreciated all its beauty only in the sixth year. A gorgeous shrub with straight branches has formed. First, he releases twigs, on which small red balls begin to swell, then these balls open, creating a skirt, and now a flower of amazing shape and color blooms. This is a very beautiful sight.


Vatochnik blooms for 30-35 days, but for a long time after flowering it remains decorative, instead of a whole inflorescence, one or two fruits are formed on the plant in the form of a swollen bubble covered with thick bundles. The color of this original capsule is somewhat darker than the leaves, and its presence only increases the decorative effect of the plant itself.

By the time of ripening, the capsule is filled with black-brown seeds with long white or yellowish silky threads. The capsule cracks when the seeds are ripe and can be carried long distances by the wind. During the flowering of the fleece, you can study the world of insects. Different types of bees and bumblebees fly from flower to flower from early morning until late evening, collecting nectar.

Vatochnik is an excellent honey plant, it is especially valuable because in many regions its flowering occurs during the period when there are few flowering plants. He has no equal in the amount of nectar. Quilted honey has a delicate aroma and excellent taste. According to American authors, a strong bee colony brings up to 6-8 kg of excellent honey from flowering tracts of this plant per day.

But the most amazing thing is that during the flowering of the fleece, I several times saw monarch butterflies on it and also an incredibly beautiful butterfly with large wings, its name is the sailboat Podaliry. So she is named in honor of Podalirius (Greek mythology) - the son of Asclepius (Aesculapius), a military doctor. The Latin name for cotton wool is Asclepias incarnata L.

So it was named in honor of the already named healer Asclepius for the medicinal properties of the species. Such was the amazing connection between the wadder (Asclepius) and the butterfly (his son Podaliry). Botanists have determined that many butterflies use cotton wool as a medicinal plant to cure their ailments.

The vatnik also has other names - these are pleural root, swallow grass, aesculapian grass, swallow.

Types and varieties

Vatochnik is a genus of plants with about 140 species, from perennial grasses to shrubs. In the 17th century, cotton wool seeds were brought to Europe by seafarers who returned from America.

But then it was used mainly for industrial purposes. Blankets and pillows were stuffed with soft hairs and used in the production of fabrics.

Meat red wool, or incarnate (Asclepias incarnata L.) - perennial plant up to 100-150 cm tall, native to North America. Stems are erect, leafy. The stem is very juicy. When broken, it releases a large amount of milky juice. This juice is poisonous, so you need to be careful when working with the plant. The leaves of the fleece are oblong-elliptical. The flowers are red or pink-purple with a pleasant vanilla aroma, collected in an umbrella-shaped inflorescence up to 6 cm in diameter.

There are varieties with white flowers. Quilted plants are not demanding on soil and care. It will melt perfectly not only on chernozems, but also on loamy soils. Grows well in open, humid areas, but can grow in partial shade. It grows slowly, so it is advisable to plant several plants at once in a group. For the winter, mulching and light cover with dry leaves are desirable. For six years, my fleece has never froze even once, even in winters with little snow and frost.

In one place, cotton wool can be grown for up to 10 years or more. Ripe seeds of cotton wool are similar to horse sorrel seeds both in color and size, but only they are covered with fibrous cotton wool, for which the plants got their name - cotton wool.

As a medicinal plant, it is used in homeopathy.

Syrian cotton wool (Asclepias syriaca L.)... Homeland - the eastern states of North America. In culture since 1629. In a feral form, it is found in Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic States, the Caucasus and in some areas of the Black Earth zone.

The stalk of the fleece is dense, hollow, erect. Plant height up to two meters. The lower part of the stem is tetrahedral, from about the middle the stem becomes rounded.

The leaves of Syrian cotton wool are dark green, leathery. Flowers up to 1 cm in diameter, light pink, fragrant, collected in large umbellate inflorescences. Blooms in July for 30-35 days. Hibernates without shelter. Drought-resistant. It grows quickly, but it does not form a dense curtain, new shoots can grow up to a distance of almost a meter from the mother plant. Therefore, in order to have a compact bush, the plant should be limited by digging a border around it.

Aqueous extract from the seeds of Syrian cotton wool is used for washing, dressing, compresses for various skin diseases, for healing wounds and stopping inflammatory processes; water extract from inflorescences - for the treatment of ulcers, purulent wounds and insect bites.

Tuberous cotton wool (Asclepias tuberosa L.)... A short (50-70 cm) perennial plant from North America with bright yellow flowers, collected in corymbose inflorescences that adorn the plant from mid-summer to autumn. A very beautiful perennial drought-resistant plant. Attracts butterflies. It differs from other vatniks in that it does not contain poisonous milky juice. The plant was traditionally eaten by the Indians.

Flower buds and young ovaries taste like peas, and young shoots are used as asparagus. In hot weather, the flowers produce so much nectar that it crystallizes and can be consumed as sweetness. An edible oil is obtained from the seeds. The roots are also eaten and have a nutty flavor and were also used by the Indians to prepare a decoction that was used as an expectorant for colds and pneumonia. The first European settlers in North America considered the plant a remedy for all diseases. Requires shelter for the winter.


Reproduction of cotton wool

Vatochnik is easily propagated by fresh seeds. Before sowing, the seeds are soaked for a day in warm water, and then sown in containers, lightly sprinkled with planting mixture.

Crops are kept at a temperature of 18 ... 25 ° C. Seedlings appear in 10-15 days. When two real leaves appear, the plants must be carefully planted in separate cups. And then plant it in the ground when the threat of frost has passed. Unpicked plants do not take root well. After the vatnik grows up to 15 cm, the sprout must be pinched. In spring, an adult plant can be propagated by dividing the bush.

Vatochnik partners: it is not recommended to plant it together with small perennials - it has powerful, large plants, and not everyone will endure such a neighborhood. Quite a good combination with tall grasses, such as high pearl barley (Melica altissima), miscanthus, reed grass (Karl Foerester variety), high varieties of meadows, or pike (Deshampsia). Also, aconites, echinacea, physostegias, veronicastrum, tall types of bells look good next to them.

Turkish carnation: features and characteristics of the plant

It is a perennial that has more modest indicators, since the height of each plant varies from 20 to 60 centimeters in height. The plant itself has a straight arrangement, strong leaves and the trunk itself, which confidently takes its position, even under the weight of not small leaves and inflorescences. The foliage is elongated and varies in shades from green to silver. Flowering is bright and massive, which manifests itself in the form of small inflorescences, which are collected in a brush. The color scheme is very diverse. Monocolor, a combination of several shades, terry or regular texture of inflorescences - whatever your heart desires. The diameter of each flower is up to three centimeters. This is an absolute maximum, since the average is 1-2 cm. In this case, the number of small inflorescences in one brush can be up to 15 pieces.

Beautiful garden flowers photos and names of perennial

For the choice of flowers in the country, the design of the flower beds plays a decisive role. If the flowerbed is decorated as a rockery or an alpine slide, then the plants will be alone, if the Moorish lawn or curtains, then completely different. The biggest problem is finding beautiful garden flowers, photos and names of perennials plants that are able to become the stars of flower beds, attract attention and arouse the greatest interest. Let's see which of them can qualify for this role.


If you are looking for a small plant for decorating a rockery or an area near a reservoir on your site, we recommend that you take a look at Armeria. On the photos of perennial garden flowers with names you can even confuse armeria with a carnation, the same dense rosette of petals on straight leafless stems.

The leaves are below and form a very decorative green pillow. By the way, some types of armeria, such as sod armeria, create a sufficiently dense coating on the ground, which allows you to get a decorative flower garden, close bald spots on the site. These flowers, of course, do not play a decisive role in the design of the garden, but they contribute to the overall floral symphony, especially since their flowering is quite long, at least two months and we can say that it lasts all summer, from June practically to September ... In order for the buds to be stronger, and the blooming petals to be larger and brighter, faded buds should be removed in time, this procedure will help you extend the decorativeness of the flower bed for another couple of weeks.


Another specific landing site is a summer cottage pond; not all plants for the garden can successfully bloom from year to year on waterlogged soil.

A good option is knifofia, this resident of Africa feels great in conditions of high humidity, loves warmth and sun, and in return will give you his original flowers that are not like any early perennial garden flowers. Photos and titles you can find varieties of bnifofii, they are all worthy of your attention.


If the classic mallow is too high for you, then you should pay attention to its miniature copy, which is no worse than the original - sidalese. This is a classic flower garden dweller, so caring for it will be a little more difficult than most varieties before. Watering is required regularly, about three times a week, and in the first year of life, while the roots are still so strong, it is worth doing it with warm water. It is also worth loosening the soil and applying fertilizers to it, however, this will not harm the neighbors of the sidalese either.

Tall perennial garden flowers photos and names


They look especially impressive tall perennial garden flowers. Photos and titles The species we are accustomed to are headed by pictures of mallow, the queen of the garden. Of course, we are interested in its perennial varieties, the varieties of which are quite numerous.

This is most difficult to do in difficult climatic conditions, for example, if there is high humidity in your area.

However, water for a plant like chelone (lat. Chelone) from the plantain family is an ideal feeding and basic conditions for good growth. In nature, or rather in the wild nature of Canada, it grows on the edges of forests and in wet flooded meadows, so in our northern latitudes, one might say, it feels like home. The height of the stems of the absolute majority of varieties of chelone allows it to be attributed to the group of tall, screen plants, so that they will be good both in multicomponent compositions and in mono-flower beds.

Shrub flowers photos and perennial names

The last section is devoted to bush flowers. Photos and names of perennials varieties are useful to those. Who wants to decorate an ornamental garden, make a hedge or close a gazebo.


Such a plant can be aruncus (its other name is Volzhanka), which blooms with very cute panicles, and after you cut them off, it will delight you with the decorativeness of the bush itself.


Also noteworthy is Daphne, a miniature shrub that does not exceed three meters in height. It has elegant flowers and no less decorative berries, its flowering is very bright and abundant, there is only one drawback, twigs, berries, leaves - all this is quite poisonous, so you should take this fact into account when planning the placement of Daphne on the site, especially if you have small children.

After working with Daphne, you should wash your hands well before bringing them to your face, much less pulling them into your mouth. But the scent of Daphne, refined and delicate, will add a special charm to your garden.


For a common flower bed, which is a set of various decorative flowers, large and bright varieties are often chosen. But recently, it has become very fashionable to include plants that look like field plants in mixborders and lawn groups. This allows you to create the look of a romantic old garden filled with the buzzing of bees and the sweet scent of herbs. For this effect, you may need perennial garden flowers, photos and names which you will find below.

It is interesting to know that Veronica is part of the traditional breast collection, they drink tea with her for coughing, and rinse the throat with a decoction for sore throat. So the plant is not only a spectacular flower bed decoration, but also a natural medicine.

Garden flowers blooming photos and perennial names

Not all perennials are able to give bright colors to a flower bed, nevertheless, annual options are used more for decorative purposes. And yet there are interesting species that, according to their external data, can give odds to the recognized inhabitants of flower beds. It is about such garden flowers blooming, photos and names of perennial varieties, you can find out below.


Tar or terry tar (lat.Visc? Ria vulg? Ris) is a rather striking representative of decorative flowering inhabitants of flower beds. In other articles about the names of perennial flowers for a summer residence and a garden, her name did not sound and completely in vain, her buds and inflorescences of bright crimson color are loved by landscape designers around the world and are very often used in arranging alpine slides, rockeries, but its combination in one landscape composition with conifers, which become an ideal lush backdrop for tar.

Its flowering is long enough, takes more than a month and begins in June. Then the stems are cut, leaving a rosette of leaves until wintering. Like many other garden perennials, tar is quite unpretentious to care for, but still, if you want the most lush and bright flowering, then it is better to provide it with regular watering.


Several years ago, eustoma (lat. Eustoma) made a splash in floristry, competing with roses, lilies and carnations. It turned out that this is not only a spectacular plant in the cut, but also a wonderful inhabitant of a country flower bed. There are many varieties of it, as well as varieties, but in order to decide, you will need to choose whether it will be tall or dwarf, ordinary or terry, and choose the shade to your liking.

We can say that eustoma is a worthy successor for traditional perennial bulbous garden flowers (photos and names which you probably know well - crocuses, daffodils, tulips), which delights us in spring and early summer. It can be planted in the same central flower bed of the site to which the maximum attention is riveted, and from July to October you will be guaranteed a lush, elegant flowering.


Syrian cottonwood (lat. Asclepias syriaca) cannot boast of overly decorative flowering, but its bush is more than compensated for by the insufficient size of the flowers. Usually, vatnik is successfully used in the landscape design of flower beds in the country with their own hands to hide any not very pleasant places on the site, to master wastelands or technical zones.

At the same time, the fleece grows quite quickly and powerfully, therefore, underground restraints are often made for it or generally planted in metal or plastic containers that can be decorated with pebbles or stones.

Then the appearance of the bush will resemble a huge exotic bouquet with a pleasant aroma. If you have an apiary, then bees will surely be happy with your wadder, because the plant is an excellent melliferous plant, the honey obtained from the plantation of this flower turns out to have excellent taste conditions and is highly valued.
