  • Aspidistra

A popular houseplant with large, flexible leaves that fills the house with life and practically takes care of itself. Although it is not so common grown indoors, it produces small white flowers, with little decorative value as they grow very close to the ground, which makes them difficult to see.

To find the perfect place for it, it is necessary to avoid direct exposure to the sun and to provide it with shadier environments. It can withstand long periods of time without watering, although it should be hydrated when the substrate begins to dry out. As for temperatures, it can withstand frosts of up to 10 degrees below zero and temperatures above 35 degrees.

  • Lilo

This beautiful shrub offers us every spring the gift of its delicate white or purplish flowers. It is very common in our country, not only for its beauty, the clean fragrance of its flowers and its ornamental power, but also for its great resistance to temperature variations and ease of maintenance.

This plant can be grown in pots or planters, although it should be taken into account that it can grow into a tree up to 7 metres high.
  • Rose

Its flowers are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and appreciated by gardening fans. Flowering can persist from the beginning of spring until October, provided they receive the right care. Roses have become an emblem in Western civilisation and represent sublime feelings such as beauty, passion and happiness.

To enjoy their beauty in your garden they will need plenty of sunshine and regular and abundant watering, especially avoiding the hottest hours of the day. They resist cold below zero degrees and up to forty degrees of heat.
