The benefits of ornamental plants on our mental health
There are many plants that can give a pleasant look to the home, but those with an intense scent are ideal for an interior space. The air quality will improve, in addition to the fact that, visually speaking, the appearance of the room becomes more beautiful.
What are the best plants for indoor use?
Ornamental trees are a first choice for decorating indoor and outdoor space. They provide good humidity in the room and purify the air. The leaves are colorful, and some ornamental trees can stay evergreen.
Flowing plants such as flowing geranium or flowing petunias will add color and fragrance to your home. These plants are not demanding on the soil or watering. They just need a lot of light. On the other hand, ivy needs a place with less light and is more demanding in terms of soil. A plant that turns into a cascade of flowers is the flowing begonia, a plant that prefers partial shade.
Another type of plant perfect for indoor use is ornamental herbs. Myrtle, Hibiscus or Lobelia are some examples that can improve the appearance of your home. Myrtle leaves give off a refreshing scent, similar to mint or eucalyptus. The blue lobby is delicate but easy to maintain. It has no resistance to cold.
What are the best plants for a garden?
Trees and shrubs are a good choice for any garden or yard.
Both fir and thuja keep their green color throughout the year, so they are a very good option for an external decoration.
The Canadian maple is a tree that, like the thuja, can grow to large sizes. The purple Japanese always changes the color of its foliage, giving dynamism to the outdoor space.
Several species of shrubs are Juniper and Cypress. In Juniper, the needles turn brown in winter, although they are green for the rest of the year. This plant grows slowly, just like Cypress.
Garden flowers can be perennial or annual. The annual category includes Crocus, Brachicola and Lavatera. Phlox and Hydrangea belong to the perennial category.
There are also ornamental plants with culinary uses, such as lavender, mint, sage, marigold or oregano.
Where do we buy ornamental plants? They are usually bought from nurseries, and prices vary from category to category. For example, exotic species of ornamental plants have the highest prices.
