The showy amaryllis is a stunning example of a bulb plant that makes a statement for Christmas. A towering beauty, the amaryllis, offers large flowers with magnificent petals of up to six inches in length on a stem that can grow as high as eighteen inches depending on the variety. Available in a range of colors, the amaryllis will feel at home for the holidays in white, deep red or even a red and white stripe combination. Place this majestic plant in a bright south, east or west-facing window out of direct sunlight.
Looking for a distinctive holiday gift for someone special? Do not dismiss the impact of a gorgeous rose bouquet. Roses may bring visions of Valentines Day to mind but these versatile beauties are available year round. This holiday season request them in traditional red, winter white or even pale green. A holiday centerpiece featuring roses mixed with other flowers, berries and greens makes for a stunning focal point on the dinner table.
Poinsettias are a sure sign of holiday cheer and florists send out more of this plant than any other during the holiday season in North America. The poinsettia produces big, bold and beautiful flowers that are hearty and will last well into the New Year. Look for poinsettias available in a multitude of traditional and new hues including white, pink, orange and red. Marbled flowers of pink and white as well as pink flecks on red are also available. Contrary to the long standing myth, evidence supports that poinsettias are not poisonous.
A new trend on the market is the arrival of tulips for Christmas. Florists will mix them with festive ornaments and greens for a fun and cheery feel. New for Christmas 2011 is the Teleflora By Golly, it’s Jolly tulip arrangement. Red and white tulips arrive in a vase with seasonal greenery, real candy canes, pine cones and a red bow. An unexpected fresh flower offering that is right at home for the holidays.
Do not forget the cyclamen and Christmas cactus for the number of flowers they produce and their long period of bloom. These flowering plants are available in the traditional colors of red and white for the holidays. They are perfect for the green thumb on your gift list.
