Korinna Kriemhild. flowers. July 20th , 2017.
The King Protea is most popular due to its large size. However, there are other equally gorgeous varieties of this flower, in colors like yellow, red, white, pink, etc.
Native to northeast Asia, plantain lilies (hostas) bloom all summer and are extremely shade-tolerant. Propagated by means of stolons and rhizomes, the hosta plant is herbaceous in habit and grows well in USDA zones 3 - 9. Some hostas have variegated leaves, thus increasing the aesthetic value of a landscape. The flowers are found in white, lavender, and blue shades. Also, the plants are edible by humans.
Due to genetic limitations, the blue rose cannot exist naturally. The flower rose lacks the specific gene or pigmentation which has the ability to produce colors of true blue. Sometimes, a purple or lavender rose may somewhat appear like a blue rose in certain light. Also, many florists dye white roses with a natural blue dye, and create false-named blue roses. However, with the help of genetic engineering, it is possible for gardeners and greenhouses to reproduce the traits for the color blue in roses. And the same was accomplished by a Japanese company in the year 2004. However, the rose did not have the 'true blue' but a darker color.
The Lady Banks' rose (Rosa banksiae normalis) was first cultivated during the late 18th century. The plant is a native of China, where it is found growing on altitudes as high as 500-2000 m above sea level. It is named after the wife of one of the members of the Captain Cook expedition, Sir Joseph Banks, who was a botanist. There are two different types of Lady Banks' rose: white and yellow. The Lady Banks' rose blooms in clusters and the white variety (Rosa banksiae banksiae) is double-flowered. Later, Rosa banksiae lutescens, a double-flowered yellow variety, was also found.
