We’ve compiled a list of 5 amazing plants you may find in our spas – so that you may bring it with you on your next visit to your local plant nursery.
Sedum spurium Variegatum
From its long name: Sedum spurium Variegatum , this “Firecracker” variety is a perennial meaning that they come back every year. With its flamboyant colours in all seasons, this perennial is very resistant to drought. Perfect in areas where there is not much land, Sedum is used on the green roofs of the Nordik Spa-Nature.
The Matteuccia struthiopteris fern is also more commonly known as an “Ostrich Fern.” In French, it is often referred to as “German Fern.” Contrary to its French nickname, this variety is native to Canada. Perfect for shady areas, it spreads quickly annually and is reminiscent of natural undergrowth.
Liatris spicata, better known as “Blazing Star” or occasionally a “Kansas Feather”, blooms in pretty, flamboyantly coloured ears from June to September. This hardy plant also has a great talent: it attracts butterflies.
A flower of many names: Rudbeckia fulgida, Goldsturm or Black-Eyed Susan. This sunny yellow flower brings a bit of colour to the spa. Having a great resistance to temperature change and different products, the small flowers are perfectly adapted to the humidity around the baths. Goldsturms bloom from June to October.
Also known as the “Virginia Creeper”, Parthenocissus spp is a type of vine. This particular creeper is very resistant and grows incredibly fast. You can admire it as it climbs on rocky surfaces. Once again, it is native to Canada.
