Some Christmas Plants and Flowers to Help Brighten Your Holidays

Some Christmas Plants and Flowers to Help Brighten Your Holidays:

I already did a post dedicated to the most famous Christmas Flower of them all so I will skip the Poinsettia in this post. Here are some other Christmas plants that can brighten your holiday and also make great gifts, some that can last for years if properly cared for.

Amaryllis is a tall, graceful holiday flower bulb. They can make statement as a centerpiece at your holiday dinner table. Typically red varieties are used for Christmas, but they come in a wide range of colors from red, white, pink or orange solid petals to striped or speckled combinations of these colors.

Christmas Cactus is named because it is thought to naturally bloom at Christmas time. If you own this plant over the years you will find it actually blooms closer to Thanksgiving. These lovely cacti have flower that hand down like Christmas ornaments from the ends of the leaves.

Mistletoe is used more as a decoration than a live plant. At one time this was a forbidden decoration of the Christian church, but is commonly seen today. Started out as a symbol of fertility, it is now a sneaky way for boys to kiss the girls or vice versa.

Use some of these plants this season to bring joy and cheer to your home or the home of loved ones.

From all of us at Groundskeeper Landscape Group may you have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
