Solitary plants attract our attention and trigger emotions. The ideal form for a particular plant lies in the eye of the beholder. Whether filigree, like a pen-and-ink drawing, or wild and nonconformist: as living sculptures, they make their mark on the environment with their growth forms, abundant flowers or autumn colours, occupying centre stage on residential balconies and small terraces and in gardens. The choice of pot is an essential factor when it comes to showcasing solitary plants. Ideal for big, decorative pots are perennial flowering plants like summer phlox and hydrangeas, as well as slow-growing trees with character, including Japanese maples and mountain pines.
An extraordinary selection of exciting solitary plants awaits you at Giardina 2016. Experts from the leading Swiss tree nurseries and garden centres will be pleased to advise you and show you suitable design options – whether for large gardens surrounding detached houses or for compact urban balconies.
