ANAGALLIS FLOWER OR ORIGINAL COLOR
The ancient name of anagallis is field full-time color (from the word eyes eyes). In the rocky garden, these annual bushes look like an accent. And folk healers consider them healing, with a wide spectrum of action of the decoction of the plant.
As an annual we still grow Anagallis is large-flowered. It is similar to field Anagallis, only flowers are larger - up to 2 cm.
Varieties of both types: Charm, Blue Eye, Blue Sea, Blue Wave, Water Surface, Scarlet.
Anagallis seeds can be sown in open ground in May (in the middle lane) - plants will bloom no earlier than mid-July. Therefore, I advise you to grow through seedlings. Then the flowers form from mid-June to frost, withstanding a drop in temperature to -3 degrees.
A universal soil with peat and sand of a neutral or slightly alkaline pH reaction is suitable for sowing. The seeds are small, so they are sprinkled quite a bit. It is better to grow anagallis without a transplant, sowing several seeds in cups, then leaving the strongest sprouts.
At the optimum temperature (+ 15-18 degrees), the sprouts usually appear in a week or two.
In May, from early seedlings, cuttings can be cut and rooted in water or a substrate.
TIPS AND OBSERVATIONS
Bushes are planted taking into account their growth by 0 m in diameter.
In hanging pots from anagallis, ampoules with shoots of 30-40 cm are obtained.
Abundant flowering occurs only in well-lit areas. Small shading after lunch is acceptable.
Anagallis prefers light, drained, not too nutritious soil.
It does not tolerate stagnation of moisture, increased acidity of the soil, excess fertilizer.
If the weather is too hot and dry, morning spraying with water is helpful.
