Houseplant of the month
The `Houseplants of the month´ of August are carnivorous plants. An unusual look and extravagant shapes - carnivorous plants attract spiders and other insects with their special appearance. The best-known carnivorous plants are the Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula), Sarracenia, sundew (Drosera) and pitcher plant (Nepenthes).
Garden plant of the month
The `Garden plant of the month´ campaign focusses in August on carefree summer plants such as Agave, Eucalyptus, Aeonium and jade plant (Crassula). In August, temperatures are likely to be hot and most people have only little time for their garden as they go on holiday. Agave, Eucalyptus, Aeonium and Crassula are succulents which store moisture in their leaves. Furthermore, Eucalyptus can withstand heat and drought due to its oil-storing abilities and a wax layer on its leaves.
In August, the flower agenda puts the spotlight on the Hydrangea which appears in dozens of colours from white, pink and green through to blood red and bicoloured. The Hydrangea is the ultimate symbol of the high summer, the time of warm days, long evenings and warm nights where a lot of people like to slow things down. Present the Hydrangea in a bright glass to create a calm look. Combine it with exotic flowers to create a lively high summer bouquet!
