Introduction:Christmas plants bring cheer to gardeners who long for the scent of fresh blooms and the beauty of green, growing things. If you have a gardener on your list, giving the gift of a live plant may be just thing to cure the after Christmas blues.
The poinsettia is my personal favorite as this plant ranges in color from pure white to bright red with many gorgeous variegated versions. My new favorite is a beautiful pink and white.
My mother always loved her Christmas cactus and waiting patiently for it to bloom each year. Although I've never had one of my own, this gardener would love a Christmas cactus this year.
Amaryllis produces huge flowers that resemble the Easter lily, but these flowers come in a range of colors from pure white to soft pinks and brilliant reds.
These tiny flowers are sold at Christmas time in container ready for forcing. Within a few short weeks clusters of snow white blooms and cheer and fragrance to the home.
These delightful little trees add holiday cheer with their waxy green leaves, but beware the leaves and berries are poisonous to cats and other pets.
If someone you love is pining for a breath of fresh air and the scent of green, growing things - give them a plant for Christmas to add cheer all year.
