The Wind flower is a perennial herb plant. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Wind flower is small in size and 15 cm in height; in the spring it assumes a yellow colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
Exposure Wind flower
It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The Wind flower should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.If necessary we can extract the bulbs from the ground, during the vegetative rest; after letting them dry we should place them in a cool, dry and dark place. During the most indicated season we can plant them again.
Watering Wind flower
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. These plants don't need too much water; staying in a soil which is too damp, can easily cause the development of rotten in the bulbs.
Treatments Wind flower
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Soil Wind flower
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
