New varieties of some flowers: amaranth and marigolds, petunias and morning glory, gaylard and nasturtiums
Such annuals as nasturtium, marigolds, merry petunias, solid sunflowers are well known to all gardeners. But their colors have become familiar for a long time, and in fact they can always find a worthy replacement in the form of new varieties with flowers of unusual color and original form.
Amaranth three-color "Illumination"
Originality of this variety is the color of the leaves. Bright fireworks of shades of yellow, orange and fiery scarlet create the effect of festive illumination or a fire on a summer warm night. The height of the bush is about 1 m. Such a plant will grow wonderfully in an open sunny place, hiding at the same time unaesthetic compost or a failed fence. Amaranth Illumination can be used as a background plant in mixborders and group plantings.
Marigolds Rejected "Strip"
This is a compact bush with a height of about 40 cm. Stripes of yellow and brown color alternate on the petals, creating an original color. It has long been known that marigolds are planted to protect garden crops from nematodes, so why not replace an ordinary yellow or orange flower with a more original - striped? Ways to use this culture are incredibly numerous, for example, in flower beds, flowerpots or balcony drawers.
Marigold Rejected Tiger Eyes "
Inflorescences-baskets with a diameter of about 6 cm are original in shape and color, which, in fact, owe their varietal name - "Tiger Eyes". The bright yellow, large, rounded center of the flower, framed by burgundy-brown petals with a thin yellow border, looks very original, especially since up to 35 inflorescences bloom on one bush at a time. The scope is as wide as that of all marigolds. This is a versatile and stunningly beautiful plant.
Marigold upright "F1 Kilimanjaro"
This variety is not a typical representative of a kind, if only because of the creamy shade of the flowers. Its bushy inflorescences reach 10-12 cm in diameter. They are incredibly beautiful, delicate and charming. The height of the bush is 60 - 70 cm, this must be taken into account when choosing a place for the plant. Marigolds are usually grown in seedlings, sowing seeds at the end of March, and the finished seedlings are planted in early June.

Looking at this variety, you will never guess that in front of you is gaillardia. Spherical terry inflorescences with a diameter of 6 - 7 cm will puzzle anyone. Only the color scheme remained from the original form: the petals combine shades from yellow and pink-purple to red-brown. This is a beautiful spreading plant up to 60 cm high. Lorenziana begins to bloom from the end of June and continues until the end of October. Gaillardia propagates by self-seeding.
Ipomoea cirrus "Sparks»
A stunningly bright climbing plant, the length of shoots reaches 2,5 m. Ipomeus can be used for vertical landscaping of the infield and balcony of the city apartment. Elegant pinnately-dissected leaves create a sensation of a lace veil, which by autumn becomes scarlet. Flowers are like small asterisks of white, pink or scarlet. They are not afraid of strong winds and even rain.
Ipomoea purpurea “Milky Way”
Incredibly tender, looking like stars in the night sky. Snow-white flowers-gramophone in diameter reach 5-8 cm. The delicate white color of the inflorescences is diluted with small strips of purple, blue or purple, arranged in the shape of a star. Shoots and. purple reach a length of 2 - 3 m - this allows her to braid everything that can serve as a support, be it a gazebo or a balcony. Ipomoea will please the flowering from mid-June until the onset of frost.
Calendula officinalis "Green Heart"
Under the chic look - a terrific terry bright orange inflorescence with an exquisite greenish center - the well-known medicinal calendula is hidden. This is one of the most unpretentious plants. Calendula blooms in about two months after planting, so the seeds can be sown not only in spring, but also before winter for early flowering in summer. Calendula is used both for decoration of a personal plot, and for bouquets, as well as for medical purposes.
Foreign Nasturtium "Canary"
The original inflorescences of this flower really look like little yellow canaries. You can easily lodge this charming bird flock in your garden. Foreign Nasturtium - a climbing plant, the length of which can reach 3,5 m. Light green leaves perfectly set off the canary yellow color of "bird" inflorescences. Nasturtium blooms from July to the very frosts. Perfect for decorating arbors, pergolas and trellises.
Petunia terry large-flowered Т1 Duet
This is not just petunia, this garden form combines two qualities: two-color and terry. Here is a neat bush up to 40 cm high with spherical flowers up to 8 cm in diameter. Corrugated red-salmon flowers with elegant snow-white stripes around the edge are a wonderful decoration for any garden. This variety blooms in the same way as all petunias, from May to the onset of the first autumn frosts.
Sunflower annual "Red Sun"
For many, sunflower is easy malicia. This is not so - or rather, not only so - it can decorate the site in such a way that no overseas flower can keep up.
This is a sunny flower familiar to us, but only in a new interesting design. The whole highlight of this variety is that a 1,5 m tall plant is decorated with inflorescences of an unusual dark red color. Sunflower loves sunny places and attracts the sun to itself, makes the site bright and warm. This plant is ideal for decorating a country-style garden, and it’s just a wonderful resident of your flower garden.

Zinnia blooms for a long time and is plentiful, but this is not the main advantage of this variety. A plant about 80 cm high is decorated with inflorescences in the form of baskets (up to 12 cm in diameter) of the most variegated motley color - just like at the Venetian carnival! Flowering begins 2,5 months after sowing, approximately in mid-June, and continues until deep frost. It looks very good in a group landing as a huge, bright, festive cloud.

More innovations in floriculture
You will not believe it, but the first candidate for beginners is the catchment. Not all watersheds, or, otherwise, aquilegia, look old-fashioned. Terry representatives of the Barlow series are completely different from themselves - they have lost Spurs, by which we recognize this flower unmistakably, and it itself has become like a tiny terry clematis or dahlia.
These are varieties of star-shaped aquilegia vulgaris (or clematis flower). And although star aquilegia can be mistaken for new products, they were grown at the beginning of the XVII century, and later simply ... forgot! And now we rediscover them.
The Barlow series, named after the granddaughter of Charles Darwin, is represented by white, pink, lilac, cherry, blue, blue and black-violet varieties.
The same form of dark cherry flower is not less than the ancient variety 'Ruby Port' On the rise of popularity "star" aquilegia 'Green Apples' - white flowers and leaves are tinted in a delicate apple-green color, which in the first half of summer are distinguished by an unusual golden-green hue.
Bright and generous flowering monards in a well-cultivated and weed-free land grow quickly, like grass in a high meadow. If you like these flowers, but do not have enough space for tall (over 1 m high) varieties, pay attention to the news. Low-growing varieties of monard double - 'ACrade' ('Grand Parade) with lavender-lilac and 'AChall' ('Grand Marshall') with raspberry inflorescences - they extend only up to 40 cm. Quite crumbs (up to 30 cm tall) hybrids of the monarda are double and m. Pardon My Pink и 'Pardon My Purple'. Good news: the novelties are resistant to powdery mildew. Nevertheless, it is better not to create conditions for its appearance, therefore watering is recommended in drought. Unlike tall varieties, compact monarchs-Lilliputians are good in small flower gardens, curbs and ornamental flowerpots. Care: after flowering, the tips of the stems are cut off, a short pruning is carried out at the very beginning of spring. In winter, dry stems that retain snow, provide protection against freezing.
You can’t immediately recognize marigolds in the stars of fire, sprinkled abundantly in bushes spherical from dense branching. But they are! The same sun-loving, heat- and drought-resistant, odorous and tireless, like all the familiar marigolds are upright or spreading with large inflorescences and my-baskets. These regulars of city beds are tired of in many ways. Therefore, choosing bags with seeds at the counter, we often do not even look at the varieties, seeing the name "marigolds". And in vain! Marigolds thinly leafy do not look like them at all. Small non-double inflorescences with a diameter of only 2 cm are covered with a continuous colored veil of lush bushes with elegant openwork foliage. Bushes planted one at a time and open from all sides to the sun grow in the form of a neat ball with a diameter of 20-40 cm, and if you line them up, you get a dense mini-border. Marigold thin-leaved is represented by varieties of yellow, orange, brick but red color, as well as two-tone with spots or a border on the petals.
Snowman is still a legend. But nasturtium with this name has already appeared! Until recently, it seemed incredible that this garden orchard can have not only orange or red, but also white flowers. Varieties 'Bigfoot', 'Yeti' and 'Cream' convince us of this. Thanks to a warm, milky-white shade, these nasturtiums are easily combined with any other bright colors in the garden and can be used for vertical gardening.
Bells always decorate the garden, but the bell is average 'Cup and saucer' in addition gives also an occasion to be surprised. Its original double corolla resembles two cups, nested one in the other, or a cup and saucer. The plant is biennial: in the first year it forms a rosette of leaves, for the second year it blooms. Colors: blue, pink, white. A shrub of a pyramidal shape with a height of 80. See what will show the guests!
All these new products can be purchased in the nurseries of the company "Gavrish." I consider this breeding center one of the best.
