Hi, I am
Hi, I am Charles!
You may also know me as the Solanum White Charles, this is also where my name is derived from. I am a blue potato bush, despite my white flowers. In fact, I'm what they call a cultivar, which means I'm a bred plant. I have a classic appearance and bloom profusely into the fall.
Together with my sisters Yasmin and Violet, I come from South America. From Paraguay, to be exact. We have exchanged this lovely warm climate for this cold little country called The Netherlands, and are waiting at Plantanious for the chance to come and brighten up your garden! Believe me, you do not want to miss me in your garden.
Where should you place me?
Warmth, delicious! Put me in a light, sheltered spot. But be careful with the intense midday sun.
What do I like?
Give me a regular drink of water and a weekly dose of plant food. Outside the flowering season, you do not need to water and feed me.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
