Petunia at Registan Square



Registan Square is in Samarkand. It is a complex of three huge and beautiful buildings, which used to be  Mosque, religious schools or Madrassah, and a public building.  The complex is a reminiscent of the great empire during the  fourteen and fifteen centuries. The complex is still in the stage of restoration.  At the square that is situated in the centre of the complex, there is a beautiful garden that I cannot resist to present it here.

The plants found in the garden are planted in the shape of a square at the outside and a circle in the center. At the centre of the circle is planted an Agave plant and surrounding it are found Petunias. Petunia is a genus of ornamental plant with more than twenty five species.  The flowers have various shade of colours from white, pink to red. The Plant belongs to the family Solanaceae.
