- undersized - a plant with a height of up to 50 cm.
- sredneroslye - bush has a height of from 50 to 80 cm
- tall flowers can reach heights of up to 1.5 m.

The flower, with such a beautiful name, and looks accordingly. Having collected a variety of shades and bright saturated colors in one low bush (15-30 cm), the viola cannot leave any gardener indifferent, so she necessarily takes pride of place in a flower garden, on a flower bed or container.
Its main advantage is that it begins to bloom in late April, reviving the dull view of the summer cottage after the winter. And the whole summer period will continue flowering if you remove wilted flowers in time. Otherwise, all the forces of the plant will be directed to the maturation of seeds.

This type of anemone also belongs to primroses. Flowers, purple, red or white, are bell-shaped and appear before the rosette of leaves develops. Dream-grass propagates by sowing seeds into the ground, and it will delight only in the second year. In the first winter of the plant is better protected, covered with spruce leaves or sawdust.
Both varieties of anemone flowers with a short flowering period, so it is best to place them near higher perennials, the latter, growing, hide an unsightly faded anemone.

It is precisely because the flower has a thin, unstable sprout, it is prone to lodging, forming a flowering plant in any corner of the summer cottage. Carnation flowers do not differ in large size, but they are pleased with the variety of colors, from white, pink to red.

Flax is also called a flower of one day, for its ability to bloom in the morning, and to drop its petals in the evening. But its flowering does not stop because of this, in the morning new buds will bloom.
Flax flowers are not large, 2-3 cm, but due to their abundance on a bushy bush, less than half a meter in height, it looks charmingly.
Flax is propagated by sowing seeds into the ground, in spring or summer, in which case it will bloom in the second year. But if there are already flax bushes on the plot, then it can be propagated, and should be done, by dividing the bush. Lyon and self-sowing reproduces well.
Planting bushes of flowers is better in groups, so they will be more sustainable, and in combination with chamomile the result will be a flowering meadow directly in the summer cottage.

Phloxes grow well in the sun, in partial shade, and even partial shade is preferable for them. In general, without any care, phloxes can grow and bloom up to 8 years old, but their flowers gradually become smaller. Therefore, they sometimes need to be fed with organic matter or any kind of flower fertilizer, and from time to time they should be watered abundantly - then the flowers will be large, and the lower part of the stem will not become bare. Once in 6 years they need to be divided: dig and chop the rhizomes and move to a new place. You can even divide the bush with a shovel right on the spot - undermine the bush, chop off part of the root and move it to another place, and fill the hole with the rest of the root again. Plant phlox better early spring. But if you had to do it in the fall, you do not need to cut the stems with leaves.

- Astra is a new Belgian
If peonies are associated with the last bell, then asters, of course, are held in high esteem on September 1 and Teacher's Day. Still, since they bloom from late August to mid-October, they come in different sizes, colorings and shapes. Asters - perennial flowers, unpretentious, photo flower beds with them proves how effective they can look.
The conditions for caring for them are similar to caring for chrysanthemums. After all, both plants belong to the same botanical family - the Astrovie.
You can grow both from seeds that are sown in early spring, and from seedlings, if the spring in your area is cold and protracted. And you can buy adult plants in pots.
Astra loves sunny areas, but can cope with a little shading.
The plant should be watered at least 1 time per week, fed with compost every spring and protected from weeds. High varieties worth tying up. Pinching the tops also gives good results.
In winter, the old foliage is completely cut off and covered with a plant.
Every 2-3 years, the bush must be divided so that the aster continues to flourish.
For problem areas
All of the above plants require sunny spots for optimal development. And what to plant on the north side of the house or under the trees? Pay attention to the hosts - the flowers are perennial, unpretentious, while perfectly growing in the shade. Most of all, they are valued for beautiful lush foliage. However, many species will please the gardener with interesting flowers on a high stem, in the shape of a funnel or bell, sometimes resembling lilies. Coloring - white, lilac or purple. It blooms from June to October, depending on the variety.
Caring for hosts
It should be noted that not all varieties like thick shade. The lighter the color, the more sunlight the plant needs. Therefore, for particularly shaded areas, choose varieties with dark, saturated green leaves.
The pit should be abundantly composted. While the plant is young, it requires a lot of moisture, but make sure that it does not stagnate. In the future, the hosts will also appreciate timely watering, but adult flowers normally tolerate short-term droughts.
Plant care is spring dressing, protection from slugs and a small shelter for the winter. Khosta grows beautifully in one place for several years, moreover, the bush will reveal its full potential no earlier than 3-6 years after planting. It is not necessary to divide it only if you want to propagate the plant.
