7. Incomparable giants - loosestriders
Among large garden perennials, indispensable for creating color spots, a beautiful background and in compositions of a natural style, loosestrife occupies a special place. The pink bloom, during which spectacular long ears of inflorescences rise above the dense sod, is impressive both up and down.
Its blooms covering all summer, especially famous for two types of loosestrife - loosestrife prutovidny (lythrum vigratum) and loosestrife loosestrife (lythrum salicaria), we are also well-known as a crybaby or ivopodobny loosestrife.
In height, the loosestrife reaches from 80 cm to 1.5 m (the common loosestrife is more compact and dense). The lanceolate, unremarkable leaves create a beautiful green pillow.
In the fall, the loosestrife prepares another surprise: its green foliage is repainted red, along with shrubs and trees.
The star-shaped flowers are small, no more than 1 cm in diameter, collected in very dense, candle-shaped inflorescences-spikelets. In the loosestrife, willow inflorescences are located more often, in the rod-shaped - less often, but it looks more graceful.
This is a great large perennial for group planting as a visual peak of compositions. In the background and middle planes, the looser is especially good. It looks great even when dry in winter, adding transparent detail to landscapes and sparkling especially impressively under the caps of snow. Derbenniki adore butterflies and bees, he fills gardens with expression and life.
