Winter is not typically the time we think about bright flowers and lots of lush green foliage. However, just because colder temperatures have set in doesn’t mean you can’t also enjoy beautiful flowers and plants. There are plenty of gorgeous winter plants and blooms that stay healthy and thrive throughout the winter months. The floral designers at Billy Heroman’s Flowers want to highlight a few of our favorites for you.
So Many Succulents
The beauty of succulents can add rich texture and bright green life to any room throughout the winter. Succulents can also be a great wintertime gift, with easy maintenance and simple care. Versatile and exotic, succulents like our So Many Succulents garden can create living art you’ll love to have.
6.5″ Norfolk Pine
Evergreen plants bring a fresh, woodsy look to your home. Keep a potted evergreen like our Norfolk Pine indoors to brighten your home. Even in small spaces, these trees can have a big impact. These can be decorated for the holidays, then enjoyed throughout the rest of the winter season, as well.
8″ Christmas Cactus Plant
This indoor plant makes a great gift because it’s easy to care for and can thrive in moderate indoor conditions. Grow in loose soil that stays moist but not soggy and watch for colorful blooms to explode at the tips regularly when placed in a sunny spot. Our 8” Christmas Cactus, shown with purple blooms, can be substituted for other colors as well.
Azalea Plant with Pink Flowers
These beautiful blooming plants are hardy enough to withstand the cold to some degree. Bring azalea planters indoors when temperatures drop and keep them healthy with occasional watering. They thrive best in moderate amounts of sunlight and love acidic soil.
Amaryllis Plant with Red Blooms
The big, colorful blooms of the amaryllis can cheer any room in the winter months. Grown from a single large bulb, these flowering plants only need occasional watering. Repotting with plant food as cooler weather sets in, your amaryllis will thrive year-round, blooming over and over. Keep indoors near a sunny window to enjoy colorful blooms all season.
When you choose winter plants and blooms to include in your home, the coldest season seems a little less intense. Send beautiful winter plants to someone special and brighten their winter. Many of these plants are low-maintenance, too, making them a great option for loved ones who lack a green thumb.
