Cereal crops are widely regarded as the most valuable grasses. But there are also “ordinary” species that can be used as cultivars for future agricultural varieties, as well as models for molecular research into plant tolerance of low temperatures and drought. These include ryegrasses (Lolium) and fescues (Festuca)

Species belonging to the genus Passiflora have beautiful exotic flowers and edible fruit, appreciated for their intriguing taste. Although they grow and bloom best in tropical climates, they can also adapt to Polish weather conditions. Steeped in symbolism, the flowers’ name evokes a certain sadness but their beauty is a true feast for the eyes
