In a corner of the garden where water stagnates and rather in the shade (therefore colder winter) I would like to put a bush plant that is an ornament and that blooms. Would you also recommend a plant that is no larger than a couple of meters?
Dear Gianni, welcome to the "Questions and Answers" section of our website! Thank you for asking us your question.
In an area of the garden like the one you described, or in an environment with little sun and rather humid like yours, we could put numerous species. However, since you are looking for a plant of up to two meters that produces a good amount of flowers, I would recommend a beautiful Camellia.
Camellia is not a native species but was imported into Italy from tropical Asia and has spread widely as an ornamental plant for various reasons. First of all, it has an excellent shape, with a rounded line that it keeps all year round as it is an evergreen plant. The most pleasant detail of this plant, however, is the flower, rich in petals and full of color, which literally fills the rounded crown of the Camellia in the flowering period.
Furthermore, a positive aspect of this plant that convinces many gardening enthusiasts to plant it in their garden is the great variety of species that there are, which allow you to have more out of phase blooms during the year thus always having something blooming in the garden.
The flowers of Camelia japonica and Camelia reticulata, for example, bloom from February to May, while the flowers of Camelia sasanqua are winter-flowering. Beyond this macro-difference between spring-flowering camellias and winter-flowering camellias, there is a myriad of varieties of camellias and hybrids that bloom in very different periods such as to allow us to cover a very large part of the year with their blooms.
L' Hibiscus syriacusCommonly known as Chinese hibiscus, it is a perfect ornamental plant for forming flowering hedges, easy to grow in the garden and in pots. The Chinese hibiscus is an ornamental plant from Asia (China, India). The plant belonging to the Malvacea family (the same as the mallow) has a shrubby habit. The aerial part of the plant is composed of numerous woody or semi-woody branches covered with dark green deciduous leaves with a trefoil shape and serrated margins.The flowers, hermaphroditic, very large and decorative, are formed by 5 petals whose color tone varies from white intense pink-purple cream.

There Wallflower it is a perennial herbaceous plant that during the spring produces spikes to which flowers with four petals each are attached. The flowering of this plant occurs from March to May and is suitable for borders, flower beds, but it can also be grown in pots. The flowers of the Wallflower are of various colors: white, pink, lilac, red, fuchsia, blue, yellow, orange and red. What is the meaning of the Wallflower? The Wallflower represents lasting beauty its meaning has changed over the centuries. It is a very popular flower in Scotland and England where it is used to decorate the walls of the cottages.
For it to have an optimal development it should be placed in a sunny place or in dim light. The important thing is that the plant receives at least two hours of sunshine per day. In fact, as already mentioned, the plant does not fear the cold, but it would be better not to expose it to temperatures below 5 °. If possible, it is advisable to cultivate it in pots and take them to a sheltered place when the outside temperatures drop below the tolerated threshold. The Violaciocca grows luxuriantly in calcareous soils and it is easy to find it spontaneously on cliffs overlooking the sea, or on old walls. The most suitable soil is light, or well drained and rich in organic substances but in reality it can adapt without problems in any soil, even in the common garden soil. The Violaciocca or Matthiola Incana has no particular needs in terms of water supply: it must be watered a maximum of twice a week and only if the soil is dry. If kept in the garden, rain is sufficient and in the case of long periods of drought it is possible to water it. Very young specimens need more water, so we recommend watering constantly, leaving time to dry the soil between one watering and the next and avoiding water stagnation.

Leaving aside the tall trees, let's focus on those suitable also for small or medium-sized gardens: MAPLE, depending on the variety, has small dimensions and foliage that can vary from green to dark red, needs acid soil, soft and acid PH, but does not have an important root system, so it can be planted quite thickly.

It is not only that wonderful tree that, when intensively cultivated, supplies us with oil: it is also a tree with its own wild beauty, the gnarled and twisted trunk, the silvery leaves, the dimensions that can remain contained, especially the Apulian ones, while the Calabrian ones are much taller and soaring.
The olive tree is typical of Puglia, from the lower Salento up to the top. This special plant can give excellent fruit, so as well as for embellishment it can be used to harvest olives and, if you have a large space, also produce oil that can be used at home.
It is important to buy young plants, which can acclimate and strengthen once planted, while if bought already adults they will not take root well and will always show fragility and transience.

The hydrangea garden has an excellent property, which consists in the formation of the color of the bud in accordance with the chemical composition of the soil. This is why the color scheme of the bush and the garden soils used by the hydrangea are so different that they allow it to be planted in various places. This gives its inflorescences an unusually bright palette, which is the main factor when using the plant to decorate the ground. The ground effect allows you to apply these beautiful flowers in creating great landscaping projects.
