Jul 20

Even if you don’t celebrate the holidays, the sight of a Christmas plant, sparkling tree or bouquet of festive flowers is enough to make us feel warm and fuzzy inside. And why not? These sights remind us that winter is coming, which means there’s only one thing left to do: cuddle with our loved ones and prepare for a relaxing, cozy season ahead. Here are some of the best plants for indoors during the winter holidays.

 

What Are Some Of The Best Holiday Plants And Flowers?

These plants and flowers are great to have around when you have guests staying with you, because they add a festive atmosphere to the house. They’re also perfect for small spaces like apartments or studios that don’t always accommodate a lot of greenery.

 

Fresh Pinecones

This plant is perfect for a minimalist home. It doesn't need much care, so it's ideal for those who don't want to spend too much time on their plants.

 

Wreaths

A wreath is perfect for decoration during the holiday season. If you want something more decorative, try this one with holly berries and red ribbons.

 

White Hydrangeas

These flowers make any space look brighter and more cheerful without needing lots of other decorations.

 

Ferns

Ferns are not just beautiful plants to look at; they also offer relief from the stress we feel in this busy world. They don’t need much light either, which makes them perfect for indoor decoration. The fronds of these plants bloom every few weeks and provide a nice pop of color to your home.

 

Indoor Holiday Plants And Flowers

Christmas Trees

As the holidays approach, many people begin to search for the perfect Christmas tree. While some people prefer the traditional evergreen, others may opt for an artificial tree. No matter what type of tree you choose, there are a few things to keep in mind when selecting the perfect Christmas tree.

The first thing to consider is the height of your tree. If you have high ceilings, you'll want to choose a taller tree. If you have a smaller space, a shorter tree may be the better option.

Another thing to consider is the width of your tree. Make sure to measure the space you have available before making your purchase. You don't want to end up with a tree that's too big or too small for your space.

 

Poinsettias

Poinsettias are a beautiful and popular holiday plant. They are native to Mexico and were first introduced to the United States in the 1820s by Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico.

Poinsettias are available in a wide range of colors, from traditional red and white to pink, yellow, and even blue. Poinsettias are relatively easy to care for. They prefer bright, indirect sunlight and evenly moist soil. Let the soil dry out slightly between watering.

Poinsettias are not frost-tolerant, so if you live in a cold climate, you'll need to bring them indoors when the temperature starts to drop. To keep your poinsettia looking its best, remove any yellow leaves and spent flowers. You can also cut the stems back by a few inches to encourage new growth. With a little care, your poinsettia will thrive and bring holiday cheer to your home for many seasons to come!

 

Gerbera Daisies

Looking for a cheerful, long-lasting floral gift? Then look no further than Gerbera daisies! These beautiful blooms come in a rainbow of colors, sure to please anyone on your list. Plus, with a lifespan of up to two weeks, they'll be able to enjoy their gift for a long time to come.

The gerbera daisy is a symbol of hope and optimism. It’s also a good choice for plants inside because it doesn’t need a lot of light. The sweet-smelling plant can trigger your relaxation reflex, so it’s the ideal plant to have on hand when you want to unwind after a long day.

 

Peace Lily

Let’s face it: sometimes the best way to relax is by opening the windows and letting in some fresh air. If you have peace lilies, you can still get that feeling without leaving your house! These beautiful plants are easy to care for as well, so they'll be around for years without any trouble.

 

Orchids

The orchid has a long history, and have been cultivated for centuries. They were once only found in the wild, but now they are grown in greenhouses and nurseries all over the world.

There are over 25,000 different species of orchids, and new ones are being discovered all the time. They come in a wide range of colors, including white, pink, purple, yellow and orange.

Orchids are very popular as houseplants, and are easy to care for. They prefer a warm, humid environment, and will thrive if they are given the proper care.

 

Aloe Vera

With its bright green color, this succulent plant is a classic holiday choice. It can be kept as a houseplant year-round.

 

Mistletoe

Mistletoe is a popular plant that is often used during the holidays. It is known for its unique appearance and for its symbolism. The mistletoe plant is a small, evergreen shrub that grows on trees. It has small, white berries and leaves that are arranged in pairs. The plant is native to Europe, Asia, and Africa.

 

Christmas Cactus

Not only is this cactus interesting, but it also has colorful blooms. This plant will add some life to your otherwise stark winter landscape.

 

Jade Plant

This is another favorite because of its beautiful pale blue hue. The jade plant will thrive if given enough light and humidity, so make sure you give it plenty of both!

 

Outdoor Holiday Trees And Ferns

The best plants for a holiday tree are evergreen or deciduous trees with dark green foliage like a boxwood, which is known for its dense, glossy leaves. For those who love to spruce up their living room, boxwood makes a great centerpiece. The best plants for an indoor fern are sword and umbrella ferns because they’re easy to care for and grow quickly.

 

How To Take Care Of Holiday Plants And Flowers?

Many of the plants below are known for their beautiful flowers, so it’s important to keep them in mind when decorating your home.

  • Ensure that the plant is watered and fertilized daily
  • Keep the plant away from direct sunlight
  • Keep the leaves dry by misting or spritzing them with water regularly
  • Make sure that you trim off any yellow leaves on the stem
  • Put a pot saucer under the pot to reduce moisture and prevent overwatering

 

How Long Do Holiday Flowers Last?

First, make sure to purchase the right type of vase or container for your flowers. There are many options out there, and they can be found in a wide variety of prices. If you’re looking for something simple and large enough to hold your bouquet without taking up too much space on a tabletop, consider purchasing a glass vase with a pedestal base.

For those who want something more decorative, a ceramic vase with an asymmetrical shape is perfect. You can also use an urn or something else that has a deep shape that will allow air to circulate around the flowers. As always, be sure to keep your holiday plants away from heat sources like fireplaces and radiators as they could damage or even kill them prematurely.
