Berries & Blooms

1440 0

The holidays are soon to be upon us and though it’s winter, it is easy to add some festive color with live plants. These blooms and berries can brighten a room and add a nice scenery touch.

And unlike that present that is only unwrapped once, these plants keep giving, some all year round!

White Jasmine

This twining climber is much sought-after for its heavenly scented white flowers, which appear en masse in late winter and spring.


Few bulbs are easier to grow and few bloom with greater exuberance and beauty than the amaryllis. Water regularly and provide bright, indirect light.

Christmas Cactus

This popular, winter-flowering houseplant makes a great addition to nearly any indoor setting. Easy to care for, making it an exceptional candidate for holiday gift giving.


Poinsettias come in colors like traditional red, white, pink, burgundy, marbled and speckled. It is the leaves, not the yellow clustered buds, that give it their color.


English Holly is an upright evergreen bush that can also be grown in pots; use to decorate the entrance of your home for the holidays when their bright red berries form.

Paperwhite Narcissus

This traditional, bright and crisp flower is one of the easiest to grow bulbs you will ever meet! Can be grown indoors or out, in soil, or just a few stones and water in a bowl.
