As winter approaches, we enter a time of year when many people could use a little cheer. One way to brighten your home is to bring potted flowers and plants into your home. During the holidays, there are many ways to decorate with plants and flowers. The beauty of winter is evident in so many beautiful winter plants and flowers. Hardy enough for cold temperatures and so pretty they’ll chase the winter blues away, these amazing plants are perfect for this time of year. The floral designers at Busch’s Florist are happy to share our favorite winter plants and flowers with you. Hopefully, you’ll discover something new to love this winter, too!
Merry Christmas Cactus
These festive plants bloom vibrant-colored flowers during the winter. They feature easy care and easy propagation. As a succulent, a cactus-like our Merry Christmas Cactus can be propagated from its foliage. It can adapt to low light, but blooms best when exposed, intermittently to brighter light. Plus, the blooms at the tips of these hardy plants are lively and colorful all season long!
Tulips and Pine Bouquet
Evergreen plants bring a fresh, woodsy look to your home. Keep a potted cypress indoors to brighten your home, or plant a lush fir or pine tree outside to enjoy all year round. Our Tulips and Pine Bouquet make a stunning floral design for any winter home, filling the air with the fresh scent of pine. When planted outside, pines and other evergreens will provide shade and noise reduction, plus a bit of privacy as well.
These flowers tend to remind us of tropical locations and exotic vacations. However, some orchids love the cool weather. Other species can be grown indoors during any season. Our Opulent Orchids design features divine white phalaenopsis orchid plants that will bloom for months when properly cared for (which is so easy!).
Grown from a large bulb, the Amaryllis rises on a sturdy green stalk. The blooms are large and range in color from bright white to rich reds. Originally from South America, the Spanish name for the flower means sparkle. These gorgeous flowers will bloom throughout the winter seasons.
Another holiday favorite, the vivid red, pink or white blooms of the Poinsettia welcome the season with beauty and brightness. A native plant of Mexico and Central America, these flowers have been a Christmas tradition since the early 19th century in America. They are a welcome sight in any home during the season and will bring the Christmas spirit right to you and your loved ones.
