International exhibition FlowersExpo - 2013, which took place at Crocus Expo on September 9-11, 2013, left a very festive impression. The real kingdom of greenery and flowers has occupied two spacious halls. One of them was almost entirely given over to cutting, in the other nurseries predominated (there were more than 70 of them among the exhibitors - from Italy, Holland, Germany, Hungary, Denmark, Belgium, France. The largest area was occupied by large stands of Polish nurseries - the main suppliers of plants to Russia. They demonstrated many of their achievements, presented recently at the exhibition "Green is Life" held in Warsaw, about which Andrei Lysikov, who visited there, wrote on our portal GreenCom.ru. Read his article Bright garden exhibition in Poland.

As at every exhibition, visitors are interested in the novelties of plants, to which we have dedicated this review.

Let's start with conifers. New forms of conifers do not appear very often, so in our review of new products there are not so new ones, but they are still rarely found on sale. The exhibition is a rare opportunity to see them. Thanks to the extensive representation of Polish nurseries, there were many different forms of conifers this year.

        The company NK-Russkiy Ogorod showed at its stand an interesting plant - beautiful leucester (Leycesteria formosa) from the honeysuckle family (Caprifoliacae), also called by its origin (Himalayas, Western China) the Himalayan honeysuckle. It is a short-lived shrub that is grown as an annual, redrawn in spring. In winter, they are kept in a basement or in a cold greenhouse. The plant is winter hardy up to -17.7 o C (zone 7a), this is 3 degrees less than that of David's buddley, with which it is often compared in terms of cultivation methods. In the more southern regions of our country, leucesteria can also be grown in the open field, cutting off the aboveground part and covering it with hilling or a layer of sand with wood ash 30 cm high, like a buddleya. More information about this plant is on the leucesterium page.

        Returning to the exposition of Polish nurseries, one cannot fail to mention clematis, five-leafed maiden grapes and two medicinal plants - common dereza and five-leaf gynostemma.

        Russian lovers of clematis had the opportunity to see at the Moscow exhibition two varieties-triumphant of the exhibition in Chelsea this year, magnificent Lemon Dream and Kaizer, which you can read about in the report Plants of the Chelsea Flower Show-2013: a magnificent twenty and not only …

        Two more varieties from Poland of Japanese selection (we were told that next year Stefan Marchinsky's nursery will show several new varieties of clematis at once):

        Clematis Kaen
        Clematis Kaen

        Clematis Kaen

        Clematis Shin-shigyoku
        Clematis Shin-shigyoku

        Clematis Shin-shigyoku

        Clematis Kaen - up to 2.5 m high, with semi-double pink-red flowers 8-14 cm in diameter. Anthers are yellow, on white threads. Blooms in May - June and again - in August.

        Clematis Shin-shigyoku - 1.5-2 m tall, double flower, medium-sized, blue-purple in color. It blooms once by the end of summer. Cutting group 2.

        Maiden grape five-leaf Monham

        The five-leafed maiden grape Parthenocissus quinquefolia Monham is a variegated variety of a popular vine with leaves covered with irregular white spots and specks. Very beautiful, but not hardy enough, up to -28 degrees. Better to use it in a ground cover culture.

        Dereza vulgaris (Lycium barbarum) is a thermophilic shrub of the Solanaceae family for the south, we can only grow in a supplementary culture with overexposure in winter in a frost-free room. Why is it needed then? Due to the unique medicinal properties, which you can learn about from our article, Dereza, but not a goat. Polish nurseries presented at the exhibition a large-fruited variety New Big, which can be considered rather a fruit crop.

        Dereza vulgaris New Big

        Gynostemma five-leafed
        Gynostemma five-leafed

        Gynostemma five-leafed

        Gynostemma pentaphyllum (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) - although a perennial plant, but short-lived, from the pumpkin family. A liana with foliage that resembles a maiden five-leaf grape, blooms inconspicuously, we most likely will not tie the fruit. Grows well on the windowsill, is supported in culture by annual cuttings. For the summer, it can be planted in a garden or displayed in a container. In fact, in our area it is acceptable as an annual plant grown from cuttings. It is worth patronizing it - this legendary medicinal and edible plant is one of the ten best medicinal plants with tonic properties, has a positive effect on all body functions, and is useful for many diseases (leaves and young shoots). More details - on the page of our encyclopedia - gynostemma.

        Among the herbaceous plants, one could see a couple of rare varieties of cereals, although they are not so new.

        Miscanthus Chinese Gold Bar

        Miscanthus Chinese Gold Bar

        Elijah Blue fescue
        Elijah Blue fescue

        Elijah Blue fescue

        Miscanthus Chinese Gold Bar is recognized as one of the best novelties of the exhibition. Obtained from free pollination of Strictus cultivar. Much lower in height (up to 1.5 m, in our climate - most likely, up to 1 m), more dense, with wider transverse stripes on the leaves of golden yellow color, justifying its name "Gold Ingot". Indicates its resistance to rust. Just a find for mini ponds. In general, the plant for various uses - from water gardens to gardens in a natural style, cottage gardens, etc., is quite drought-resistant. Zone 5a.

        Elijah Blue fescue is one of the best varieties of gray fescue (Festuca glauca). Also known as Festuca ovina or Festuca ovina var. g lauca Elijah Blue. Low, up to 20 cm, with very narrow, needle-shaped, gray-green foliage. Forms a dense hummock, winter-green. Is a youngster, requires frequent division. Winter-hardy.

        Crowded-flowered loosestrife
        Crowded-flowered loosestrife

        Crowded-flowered loosestrife

        Crowded-flowered loosestrife(Lysimachia congestiflora) is not a novelty, but not yet a widespread culture. This is not a perennial wintering in our country, the varieties of which are grown from cuttings for a long time, therefore they are rarely found on sale. From seeds, the species form can be cultivated as an annual through seedlings. Forms creeping or creeping stems up to 40 cm long. In my opinion, this is the Lyssi variety that blooms with golden yellow flowers with an orange speck in the center from May to September, but intermittently. Loves humus soils, warmth and a little shading. In winter, it is stored in a cool greenhouse or winter garden. It can be planted outdoors in rocky gardens as a groundcover. See how great it looks in hanging containers - it's understandable why it is called the Golden Globe in some countries. To get such a perfect ampel,you need at least 2 pinches during the growing period.

        Cyanosis blue var. variegata Brise d'Anjou
        Cyanosis blue var. variegata Brise d'Anjou

        Cyanosis blue var. variegata Brise d'Anjou

        Cyanosis blue var. variegata Brise d'Anjou

        Cyanosis blue Brise d'Anjou - isolated in France among plants introduced from North America. It is distinguished by a green-cream border along the edge of the foliage and purple-blue flowers on long peduncles. Height 45 cm. Grows slowly. Suitable for sunny garden areas and mixed container compositions. Winter hardiness is indicated up to -31 degrees.

        At the seminar dedicated to the novelties of the German company Volmary, organized by the "NK-Russkiy Ogorod", special attention was attracted by the bidance, which remains little widespread in our country, although it is gaining increasing popularity in Europe. And this is not bidense ferulele, but a new species.

        Bidens, or a series of three-veined (Bidens triplinervia) of the Hawaiian Flay series is a real breakthrough in the selection of this crop. From the initially yellow color of flowers, orange with a red center (Orange Drop), orange with a yellow center (Orange Yellow Blush), and scarlet (Red Drop) were obtained. All varieties are great for hanging baskets and containers. Grown from cuttings.

        Bordered dracaena (Dracaena marginata) is a widespread houseplant with the species form Marginata and two decorative forms - Magenta and Tricolor.

        Dracaena bordered by Sunray - a novelty, it is distinguished by a wide yellow stripe in the center of the leaf, with a dark green border around the edge. Like the Tricolor form, it is more demanding on light compared to the basic form. Demonstrated by a group of producers Decorum (Holland), and, most likely, will immediately appear on our market.

        Among the phalaenopsis with a single flower (Singolo) that have appeared in recent years, in addition to white, a pink color has appeared (in the photo on the left). And for those who are interested in the stand with blue and purple phalaenopsis, and who asked us if they are real, we answer that these are living, artificially colored plants. At the base of the peduncles, the holes through which the injection of the dye was made are clearly visible. This is a way to get non-existent plant colors. Anthurium André was painted with the same method. Another color option is to apply a coloring aerosol (pink, blue) to the center of the flower, as you can see in our photos. I must say that these are gift concepts. If you want a long life for your plants, get better plants of natural colors (the dye negatively affects the state of the plant),especially since the next flowering of phalaenopsis or anthurium will be white or almost white.

        Below you can see the new varieties of Andre's antrium and gerberas for indoor growing, as well as the most attractive cut samples. There were a lot of them at the exhibition - roses, gerberas, chrysanthemums, lisianthus, proteaceae, ornamental greenery, etc. The stand for the demonstration of new products this year seemed immense, and even larger was the stand with bouquets to assess the quality of the cut.
