Ilex

Ilex is a species of 400 flowering plants out of the holy family (Aquifoliaceae). The plant is originally from the eastern part of North America and the southeast in Canada. Native Americans used the berries for medical purpose. That’s the reason the plant got the nickname fever bush. One of the other names of this plant is winterberry. The plant loses all his leaves in the winter, the only thing what remains are the typical berries. But be careful! Those berries are mildly toxic to humans.

Gerbera

The discovery of the Gerbera has a Dutch touch, even though it was in South Africa. In 1727, the plant was discovered in Africa by Mr. Gronovius, a botanist from Leiden, who called the plant after his colleague Traugott Gerber. In 1827 the flower was introduced to the United Kingdom, and there the production was further refined and cultivated. Since 1950, the Netherlands is the largest country in the field of Gerbera development. Since 1975 it has become a very popular cut flower, and many Gerberas are exported.
