Heather's Helpful Hint

Holiday Houseplants
December 13, 2012

So you want to include Christmas flowers in your holiday decorating, but you are tired of poinsettias and just can't decide what you want. Before you eliminate the poinsettia altogether, consider one of the newer varieties with beautiful variegation or flower form like Ice Punch, Strawberries and Cream, or Carousel.

If you are still not convinced, remember Christmas Cactus or Cyclamen, which provide interest long after the holidays are over and are not so reminiscent of Christmas Day itself. Colors vary from red or white to vibrant pinks, purples, and bicolor blooms.

A trendy new option for the season is the begonia called ‘Grace.’ Its leaves are shaped like holly and a rich bouquet of large flowers with red and green petals cover this beautiful plant. The blooms are long lasting and this plant will last inside until spring when you can enjoy it outdoors in a container or planted in a garden border.

At Waterloo Gardens you will also see lovely pure white calla lily, red or white azalea, stephanotis, gardenia, and many combinations of plants in our holiday dish gardens ideal for indoor décor this season.

When you visit our Greenhouse please ask one of our experts to show you our selection of beautiful indoor plants with seasonal interest. There is so much to choose from including some pretty spectacular poinsettias for the traditionalist in your family!
