Obedient plants18.10.2020
This year I planted this perennial in my garden for the first time. Why? I came across a picture of it and simply fell in love. Its name obedient is a sort of a joke because it is listed among invasive plants spreading by both rhizomes and seeds and forming dense but beautifil colonies. You can easily limit its mass by using mulching woven around it and removing spent flower heads to prevent them from selfseeding.

I used both colours in my new bed - pink and white. The pink one is still blooming heavily now - in mid October and shows absolutely free from leaf diseases.

Obedient plant grows in a wide range of habitats - from dry prairies to moist river banks. It only needs full sun. No feeding necessary.

Flowers of Rosea variety have a beautiful pattern inside but you have to bend over and look really from up close.

And Miss Manners is also snow white but taller than Peach White and very uniformly upright growing.

New video - Invitation to our garden centres14.09.2020
Indian summer is here and flowers are all around. For those who cannot visit our garden centres in person we have a little tour showing all those beautiful plants we have for you :-)
Life will wind a way12.09.2020
A beautiful morning, the sun is out, and everything around is bathing in its rays. I'm walking by a stone wall in our garden centre, long before opening, thinking of virtually nothing. Until glowing yellow colour makes me raise my head. My eyes are about to pop out from their holes as in a cartoon movie when I get struck by a sunflower growing from a crevice between two stones. Absolutely fresh, perfect, and gorgeous. Smiling at me. No, giggling. No, smirking!

Well, that was unexpeced. Half of our staff (including me) had no idea there was something growing, the other half noticed some leaves on the wall but paid no attention as there was enough weed on the top of the wall. Now questions were asked - How did it get there? Did a bird bring a seed? How could it survive without any watering, or even worse - without any human care?? What a dare!

I remember an episode of Grey's Anatomy when a young doctor, an oncologist, enthusiastically tells her students about a type of brain tumor she had to deal with. She had to study it well in order to know how it behaves, how it resists all other doctors' efforts to kill it. Most of her students do not share a slice of her passion for cancer because everyone knows it kills people when it wants to live. And we kill cancer because we want to live. The fascination had no moral aspects, it was purely connected to the will to survive of any living creature.

Like a sole seed of a sunflower in a crevice of an old stone wall, collecting one raindrop after another, slowly making fine roots in the sand-filled clefts, gathering enough strength to burst out believing one day it will be able to produce a flower and set seeds. Which it did.

The first picture is almost three weeks old. Today our lovely sunflower is not so showy anymore and bottom leaves start wilting. All good. It has no need to be beautiful anymore. While it still makes short branches with smaller flowers the mother's head has lost most of its flower petals and begins to bend as the oily, heavy seeds inside it slowly mature. Shortly they will be ripe and will attract a lot of birds from nearby to feast on them. They will eat up a lot but also spread many all around so that next year somebody somewhere else can gaze again at a beautiful flower which surprisingly rose out of nothing.

And the circle of life will go on ...
