Cotinus coggygria (in the photo the variety "Royal Purple"), an ornamental shrub appreciated for the beauty of its foliage and for its characteristic plumed fruits. #cotinuscoggygria #cotinus #CotinuscoggygriaRoyalPurple #smoketree #Venetiansumach #Americansmoketree #purplefringe #smokebush #Tyroleansumac #Venusssumach #wigtree #youngfustic #EuropeanSmoketree #fustete #perukbuske #Rhuscotinus #Cotino #purple #greentexture #textured #macro_captures_ #macromania #macro_art_ind
Francesco - Garden Design on Instagram: “「BARK」Si sa che il lunedì è un giorno spinoso! Mi sembra che la corteccia della Chorisia (o Ceiba) speciosa rispecchi bene l’inizio della…”
This extraordinary plant, Chorisia (or Ceiba) speciosa, can remain without leaves for a long time, but still manages to make photosynthesis thanks to the young green branches and storing water at the base of the stem, swelling and taking the characteristic flask shape, which is why it is also called "bottle tree" in Italy.
Francesco - Garden Design on Instagram: “「BARK」In giardino l’acero campestre non ha mai avuto posto di rilievo, come la maggior parte delle piante autoctone. Forse la poca…”
The Acer campestre is one of the most common wild plants of Italian regions and was once used as a guardian for vines. It prefers moist temperate climates, even if it grows in both cold and warm environments, but not too dry. A negative note is in being a plant quite prone to attacks from parasites, fungi, branching cancers, insects and more.
Francesco - Garden Design on Instagram: “「BARK & FLOWER」In questi giorni senza neanche una nuvola, si vedono dei contrasti magnifici. Come i fiori gialli del corniolo con sfondo…”
In these days without even a cloud, I see magnificent contrasts. Like the yellow flowers of cornelian cherry dogwood with the blue sky in the background. In fact, the Cornus mas between February and March produces many intense yellow puffs, even before the leaves appear. Follow small roundish edible berries, which ripen in July, becoming cherry red.
Francesco - Garden Design on Instagram: “「BARK」Non è esattamente una corteccia quella in foto, però mi piaceva molto il disegno che creava. La Palma del Viaggiatore (o Ravenala…”
It isn’t exactly a bark in the picture, but I really liked the design that created. Traveller’s palm (or Ravenala madagascariensis) seems to be a cross between a banana tree and a palm tree.
Francesco - Garden Design on Instagram: “「BAD DAY」La giornata di oggi non è iniziata particolarmente bene, o meglio è stata abbastanza movimentata (chi ha visto la mia ultima…”
Here is if I have to think about which plant could represent the morning, it is definitely the trunk of the Ceiba pentandra. We'll see if those thorns will be smoothed during the day.
Francesco - Garden Design on Instagram: “「BARK」Palma delle Canarie o Phoenix canariensis appartiene all'ampio genere delle palme e come tante tra queste sono particolarmente…”
Canary Island date palm or Phoenix canariensis belongs to the wide genus of palm trees and as many of these are particularly appreciated as they give the landscape a "tropical" and "holiday" scenario. The phoenix has characteristics similar to other types of palms, they also present the leaves that open with the typical green tuft on the top of the trunk and flowers closed in the characteristic oval leaf.
The World's Most Beautiful Bark (Or: Trees Worth A Closer Look)
Boswellia elongata is more commonly known as the Frankincense Tree. On a small Yemenite island to the east of the Horn of Africa, you can find eight of the world's 24 species of incense trees. Islanders chew the sap as a mouth disinfectant, and burn it for its scent.
