This range of cool plants have it going for them. Ranging from Dianthus 'Silver Star', Fuchsia, Nepenthes, Cyclamen, Pelargonium, variegated Senecio macroglossus etc, they are a group of plants that demand a cold treatment with a lower ambient temperature or drop in temperature for optimum growth and flowering.

By the way, the highland Nepenthes produced inflorescences of male flowers. Outdoors, the tall grasses, Cleome hassleriana, Verbena bonariensis, Tibouchina and Pistia stratiotes dominate the landscape on land and in water.
