- fat chicken: The “fat hen” is also called sedum and is an easy-care and typical cut flower of autumn. The plant doesn’t really deserve to be called like fat chickens. It belongs to an extremely varied plant genus, of which there are also many filigree representatives. Of the approximately 420 sedum species worldwide, around 100 grow naturally in Germany, and these are also the particularly recommended species because they are familiar with our climate. In addition, there are a lot of fatty hens from other parts of the world, which also do well here because the climatic conditions are quite similar to ours. So you can also plant many types of sedum plant and thus increase the variety of shapes and colors.
- Autumn asters: Asters are a popular cut flower and also belong to the daisy family. At first glance, the beautiful flower heads look like a uniquely large flower, but the flower consists of many small, ray-shaped flowers that are arranged in rays and form a colorful wreath. Hence the aster got its name, because the Latin derivation of the generic name is astrum, which means star, star, and refers to the arrangement of the ray or ray flower.
