When they say about the decoration of the garden and the home space, it is often reduced to the use of very high and medium plants. But the soil cultures can look no worse. The main thing is to apply them correctly.
Many people know about the soil plants for the garden only that they differ in a small height and are usually steals on the ground. But it is necessary to understand that not everything is so simple and easily arranged. Do not confuse soil and carpet plants. The soil cultures themselves in their own ways are used for the following purposes:
- decoration of poorly looking places;
- filling out empty space;
- Enhance the attractiveness of the tree circle.
The height of the soil plant can reach 0.15-0.3 m. They are distinguished by decent decorative qualities and successfully suppress weeds.
Additionally, the benefits of such crops are associated with such moments:
- protection of fertile soil layers from wind and water;
- covering all flaws of the site;
- making the territory of an externally well-kept species;
- soil saturation with oxygen;
- raising fertility;
- Hold moisture in the ground and containing its overheating in the heat.
Review of species
At one of the first places among the soil perennials deservedly turns out to be a shilovoid phlox. He has a different name – Mokhovaya Carnation. This culture comes from the new light. The popularity of species is associated with decent decorative qualities. And the epithet “Shilovoid” is given due to the rigidity of the lanceal foliage, which really resembles a timer.
Wild-growing copies often populate:
- stony plain sites;
- cleft cliffs;
- Sandy hills.
The height of the cylostphlox does not exceed 0.15 m. His steels are covered with small foliage. Flowerines contain 1 or 2 booton. Flowers have a pink, purple or snow-white color, in all three options you can trace a purple hue.
Blossomy Floxes bloom abundantly, and taking into account re-blossom, this process covers all summer.
Quite often you can hear about the devil (his name is Sedum). This semi-stabilizer biologists belong to the family of Tolstanka. He has a fleshy foliage having not only green, but also reddish and even sometimes brown. Coiding does not require some kind of complex care and can develop almost on any earth. However, he will look at sunny plots. What is important, when disembarking at once, several types of surcharges can be obtained by an attractive floral carpet, saving all summer.
Beautifully looks and flowers outlits. The height of this plant does not exceed 0.15 m. When flowering time comes, all green parts are tightly blocked by multi-colored bright petals. For culture, a hemispherical configuration is characterized, which allows it to use it in the Alpine slides and gardens of stones.
Owls are well tolerating severe frosts, but needs good lighting.
Stagnation of water badly affects this plant. Half ward will bloom twice during the vegetative season. Long bloom is ensured by forming trimming. From cut healthy shoots, you can get a new pig.
Good decorative qualities demonstrates Mshanka (She is the Irish Moss). Mainly this culture is used for registration of lawns and stony gardens. Buckets are very low (up to 0.08 m maximum). They form dense green pillows perfectly responding to forming trimming. Saving the Irish Moss Steel. They develop miniature snow-white flowers, not growing in inflorescences, but strictly single. Msanka is equally well developing in the shade and on sunny plots. Special requirements for Earth, it does not impose.
Still sometimes grow the ace. This perennial has relatively small, non-producing fragrance of red or burgundy flowers. His foliage is also characterized by impressive decorativeness
Indiscable leadership among the soil industry belongs to lobular. It is characterized by an abundance of bright flowers that exude a very gentle fragrance. Burned Lobulia will close almost the entire space that is available to it. Flowers can plant and monotonous plants, and several species at once. In the second case, it turns out a colorful lush carpet.
Among the best is definitely the everotic begonia. Despite the brightness of flowers, they have a simple structure. The view can bloom until the start of frosts. If two such options do not suit for some reason, then Lobelia will fit perfectly.
After the expanding of Lobelia, the shoots fucked on Earth soon form an independent plant.
Culture looks very good both in the flowerbed and in a vase. According to attractiveness, however, with it can confidently compete with Ageratum. Its dense bushes are covered with flowers of various tones. Variating the view and color of the ageratum, you can create a unique floral ornament.
Also from among the annuals deserve attention:
- umbrella iberis;
- hybrid mimeuses;
- Open Sanvitals;
- Casual beasts.
Loose Flox needs a lot of light. It is categorically impossible to plant it in excessively moistened places. There culture weakens and can even die. Paradoxically, the innovid flocks on fertile land do not justify the expectations of the flower. They will work out a lot of greens, but there will be very little blossom.
Coid searched into open ground with seedlings. Sow seeds on it in March and April. Soil can be any, but will have to use mineral fertilizer. Coiding will be equally good at any site, regardless of its illumination. Something and rocky soil.
Owls are quite well divorced by seeds. But despite the simplicity of sowing them into open ground, it can lead to stirring of varietal signs. Sowing seedlings produce about 2-2.5 months before the onset of sustainable heat. Apply the usual pot substrate or peat tablets. During the cultivation of seedlings, it is carefully protected from excessive moisture.
Will not cause special difficulties and cultivation of msanka. Seeds on seedlings sow into small containers filled with moisturized soil. Certainly use shelter film.
Planting at a permanent place spend at the junction of April and May.
Shilovoid phlox watered only with very dry and hot weather. When the plant is flashing, it should be cut, getting rid of the stems experienced and aligning bush. Important: In the last third of the summer, the haircut can lead to the loss of flower kidney, and therefore it must be done before. The plant is well experiencing winter even without special shelter. It harms him only the absence of snow or frequent alternation of thaws and frosts.
Clamps need spring and autumn to feed the organic or complex mineral mixture. Use of manure is not welcome. Special attention is advised to pay the prevention of fungal rot and combat them. Watering Sedum only with a long and stubborn drought. Very important timely shorting of stems.
Watering Owls is carried out in about the same cases as watering.
It is recommended to use sprinkle, and not conventional ways of irrigation.
After each watering or rain, the earth surely loose. It is advisable to combine this procedure with weeding. During active growth, the audit is needed twice or three times to richly melted.
Shilovoid Msnoki have a good frost. Even in a minor winter, a good shelter is sufficient protection. Young plants need protection from sunburns with spunkonda. In the first 14 days after landing, Icelandic moss is watered daily. Then even in hot periods, watering is needed to maximize 1 time in 2-3 days.
Usage in landscape design
For the paths in the country, or rather for the framing of their perimeter, the outcome of the obudents. It is also recommended to use in alpinearia. If not limited to this culture and other grinding plants, it is worth describing the use of felt jack. It is used to accompany:
- Alpine slides;
- Decorating stone walls.
If you need to mulch a rolling circle of wood, slowly growing crafts and bilquines will be suitable. Customs can be used to decorate a garden path. Along with him, phlox and primroses are widely used in places. Lawns from drought-resistant cultures can be broken anywhere, but it is necessary to remember that it is impossible to go for them.
IMPORTANT: Almost any soil driver, with rare exception, it grows very quickly. Will have to carefully monitor this process to avoid bad effects.
Individual features of each type deserve attention. Contrary to popular opinion, let’s say, the same phlox can be used far from only as the main background. Optimally combining this species with flowers:
Clamps are actively used as autonomous solites. With their help it is easy to arrange a large carpet area (lawn). But it can be done on the basis of these plants and multi-level flower beds, which will also look gorgeous. Often they advise surrounding fountains, ponds and natural reservoirs. Seduum can be used in conjunction with other low-speed, not very propagating perennial cultures.
