It’s no secret that poinsettias make great holiday plants, but why not try something different this winter?
Amaryllis can be purchased as a bulb or a plant, and will produce large, beautiful white, pink, or red flowers.
These shades can also be found in Rieger begonia blooms. This begonia has dark-green leaves and incredibly vibrant flowers.
Gloxinia, a close relative of the African violet, has dark green fuzzy leaves, and large, bell-shaped blooms in reds, purples, and pinks.
For a foliage plant, try Stromanthe ‘Triostar.’ It has green and white leaves with bold red undersides.
Dress up these and other plants by placing them in festive containers.
