Very Merry Plant Additions to Your Holiday Home
It’s that most wonderful time of year.
You see Christmas trees at every turn, hear carols at all the shops, and smell fresh gingerbread wafting through the air. We bet your thoughts are turning to how to deck your halls. We’ve assembled some creative ideas that are merry, bright and just right for Christmas 2019.
Deck the halls with …boughs of fig! Even if you’ve already trimmed your Christmas tree, the Ficus Lyrata stands ready, willing and able to spread even more Christmas cheer. How about adding a bold red bow to the plant – or a tartan plaid scarf that’s jauntily wrapped around the leaves? Have left over LED lights from the tree? Think of using them on your Fiddle Leaf. Simply wrap them from the base of the pot up to the top leaves. Lastly, add some pinecones atop the soil to bring home that unmistakable holiday scent. View Fiddle Leaf Fig >>
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Christmas Palm? Christmas in paradise! The Christmas Palm adds that touch of the tropics to your festive décor. After the holidays, move these Palms outdoors. When planted in the right spot, they can grow up to 60 feet tall, bearing crimson fruit as the holiday approaches. View Christmas Palm >>
For the succulent lovers among us, pick a Christmas Cactus that blooms in your favorite color. These petite, yet eye-catching table toppers keep on giving during the holidays with blooms in pink, purple, orange, gold, and more.
The Christmas Carol succulent grows in the shape of star…a heavenly addition to your decor. Its leaves are dark green with bright red trim, and are accented with textured raised crimson spots.
As holiday prep becomes more frantic, keep cacti top of your list. They look amazing, and are blissfully low maintenance. They add color and texture to your homescape, and make much appreciated hostess gifts, stocking stuffers and ideas for office grab bags.
