Just because the weather outside is frightful doesn’t mean you have to do without fresh greenery and blooming plants all winter long. There are plenty of beautiful winter plants that continue to thrive, even in colder temperatures. Some even bloom, presenting gorgeous color when the world outside is blanketed in snow. The floral experts at Adrian Durban Florist are excited about the plants we see so frequently this time of year. Here are some of our favorites and how you can be sure to enjoy them this winter, too.
Not only do Norfolk Pines make adorable little potted Christmas trees, they’re also fantastic indoor plants. Once the holiday decorations are packed away, enjoy your indoor Norfolk pine by providing plenty of light, water, and humidity (in drier winter climates, a humidifier and plant misters will help).
