A Tropical Plant Is in Bloom at Yasnaya Polyana


The russelia, an exotic plant brought here a year and a half ago, is now blooming in the Greenhouse of the Yasnaya Polyana Hotel. This perennial low-growing evergreen bush is naturally found in tropical areas from Mexico to Cuba and Colombia, so we had very modest expectations for trying to take care of it. But it turned out we were wrong; russelia proved to be easy to keep and resistant to diseases. We will now grow it in ornamental flowerpots and used for decorating the hotel area. More photos of this plant, and also of blooming callas and jasmine, can be seen here >>>
