Hi, I am
Hi! My name is Violet.
You guessed it, I got my name from my color. I am also known as the Solanum Rantonnetii/Lycianthes or the blue potato bush. So do I grow potatoes? No, definitely not. The potato is only related to me. With me in the garden you can enjoy beautiful flowers!
I come from Paraguay, South America, just like Charles and Yasmin. The three of us have traveled a long way to get to the Netherlands! Now we are shining in many gardens, and with good reason. We are indispensable in your garden!
Where should you place me?
I love heat and therefore like to be in a light, sheltered spot. Be careful with the intense midday sun!
What do I like?
I like a regular sip of water, and I like to have some plant food every week. Outside the flowering season, I want less water and no fertilizer.
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.
