Description
Summary:Floricultural plants are the most colourful, varied and beautiful element of green areas. Choosing the flowering plants to be included in decorative flower arrangements should be done with great care and taking into account flowering plant size, flower colour, blooming time and requirements from the soil and climate. Flower arrangements should be the point of attraction within green areas, but improper flowering plant choice can result in unpleasant landscapes.( M. PREDA -1973) The present paper presents a study on a few annual flowering plants we used in the arrangement of a mixed flower bed in the Botanical Gardens of the Municipality of Timisoara (Romania). The goal of the research was to find the best flowering plants associations for the soil and climate conditions of Timisoara allowing more effective costs related to the production of plantlets, to the design, planting and care of floral arrangements in city parks and gardens. The study was carried out in 2012: it consisted of measurements during all flowering plant development stages aiming at producing the best combinations of flowering plants for the green areas of Timisoara. To process results, we monitored flowering plant evolution during the entire vegetation season: flowering plant size, diameter, blooming time and duration, flowering plant response to neighbouring flowering plants.
