Comment
Nielenbergia (scientific name: Nierembergia spp.) is native to Argentina and is semi-cold-resistant perennial of the family Solanaceae. It is a member of the silver cup (grasshopper). Petals are pale purple or white with small cup shape, so in English it is called cup-flower. The central part of the flower is yellow. For a long period from the early summer to the autumn, the stocks are well branched and the stocks are excited, and many small flowers continue to bloom. The genus name Nierembergia is a Spanish botanist and is in the name of the surname of John Eusebius Nieremberg, a monk of the Jesuits Conference. Flower language is "unforgivable love". This is because Nieremberg was a monk.
