Yes, that’s Venice in the background. And lots of lovely miniature Calandiva by Fides up front. Let us explain this not-too-obvious combination.
The great thing about the Diva is its African origins: deep down inside it’s still the strong, self-sufficient succulent of Madagascar. That makes these fantastic flowers-in-pot wonderfully low maintenance and very versatile. They can take sun and shade and thrive both indoor and outdoor in frost free periods. So, a great plant for the Mediterranean climate that seems to conquer the whole of Europe
Those southern genes also bring on the drought busting talents that make Calandiva an ideal room AND patio mate in summer. No whining about the temperature, no fading of the colours, thanks to its unique Colour Infinity DNA. And weeks and weeks of happily blooming rose-like flowers – you could do worse.
