Xmas-Themed Floral for the Home
Get in the holiday spirit with some Christmas-themed flora. Whether you’re looking to add a holiday vibe to your living room or want to make it easier on yourself by keeping your kitchen stocked with fresh herbs, these plant suggestions are sure to bring some cheer into any home.
Mistletoe is a parasitic plant that grows on trees and can be found in most temperate regions around the world. It is traditionally associated with love, kissing, fertility, peace, and good luck. The tradition of kissing under the mistletoe began at least as early as 16th century England where it was said to ward off evil spirits.
Rosemary is a gorgeous, ornamental plant with lovely evergreen foliage and small white flowers. The plant can also be used for cooking—chop it up and apply it to your dishes for a festive aroma. Like other plants in the mint family, Rosemary can quickly grow indoors or outside in pots. You will need to keep it appropriately watered throughout the year; however, if you don’t have much space or time for gardening activities, this is probably not the best choice of flora for Christmas decorations.
Poinsettias are a popular Christmas flower. They’re very hardy plants that can survive in cooler climates, making them an ideal addition to your home’s décor this holiday season. Poinsettias come in many colors, including red, pink, and white; you’ll find them readily available at local nurseries or big-box stores. If you’re looking for something unique, ask the staff if they have any unique varieties.
Amaryllis is a great way to do it if you want to add some seasonal cheer to your home. They’re beautiful, easy to care for, and can remain indoors year-round. These flowers have been cultivated for centuries and are known for their large, showy blooms that come in various colors.
Also called Schlumbergera truncata, the Christmas cactus has large flowers that bloom around November and December, making it a perfect addition to any home during the “holiday season.” You provide this plant with plenty of light and good drainage.
These flowers are all beautiful and can add beauty to any Christmas-themed event. Whether it’s a dinner party or decorating your home, there is no shortage of options for choosing plants for Christmas. If you don’t have room for all these plants, consider sticking with just one or two kinds that can be used in multiple ways And remember: keep watering them regularly—they will thank you later!
