More than a hundred varieties of perennials are prepared to decorate the capital.

In Moscow, the planting season of perennial plants is coming to an end – by the fall, over a million more flowers will appear on city flower beds.

“More than 90 percent of the total volume of work on planting perennials has already been completed. They are planned to be fully completed by September. Over a hundred varieties of perennial plants are grown annually to decorate the capital. The assortment of cultures is diverse and calculated in such a way that the period of decorativeness of flower arrangements lasts as long as possible – from early spring to late autumn, “said the head

Department of Housing and Communal Services of Moscow Vyacheslav Torsunov.

Most often, perennial flowers in compositions are combined with annuals. There are such flower beds in Manezhnaya Square, in Ilyinsky Park, on Leningradskoye Shosse, approaches to VDNKh, in the parks “Alekseevskaya Gora” and the Northern River Station.

Multicolored compositions of perennials are less common – the most colorful of them are located in the squares on Triumfalnaya Square and Kutuzovsky Prospect, as well as in Victory Park.

One of the most unusual perennial flower gardens is located on Manezhnaya Square. On an area of ​​almost 900 square meters, plants are planted in the form of oriental ornaments – arabesques. More than 50 thousand colors form complex geometric shapes. Astilba Arends, Italian aster, Buenos Aires verbena, physostegia, sage, graceful begonia, seaside cineraria, zonal pelargonium and ageratum grow here.

Perennial flower beds require special care: they are regularly weeded from weeds, loosened, watered, fed with fertilizers, planted with fresh ones instead of fallen ones, cut off faded flowers and withered leaves. Closer to winter, the plants are prepared for the cold – the aboveground part of the plants is cut off, the roses are spud and covered.
