It only seems to us that only trees grow in the forests. In fact, a huge number of flowers are growing there, which cover the earth with blue, white and yellow "carpet". It happens that you walk in the middle of a forest and suddenly you find yourself on an amazing glade, on which bells, chamomiles, St. John's wort, cornflower and many others grow.
Forest flowers are different from others in that they require special habitat conditions. In the wild, they are under the protection of trees, they are not scorched by the sun, they are not exposed to strong winds. Forest flowers are also very fond of shade, during periods of cold weather they do not freeze due to the fact that they are covered with fallen foliage.
Recently, designers are trying to introduce forest flowers in the design of urban and park flower beds. Not every plant takes root in such conditions, and yet there are a great many species that quietly moved from the forests to the cities. Most often in the cities you can find a bell, a forest geranium, and the willowy aster is generally considered the progenitor of most of the modern colors of the Aster family.
This is due to the fact that many forest flowers are so good that you can admire them for a very long time. It is surprising that no one waters them, does not weed, and doesn’t care for them at all, but they grow beautifully themselves. At the same time, almost any forest flower can compete in beauty with indoor or garden flowers.
