5 popular plants and flowers for Christmas

  1. 1. 5 Popular Plants and Flowers for Christmas
  2. 2. The Christmas holiday is a time of beauty and cheerfulness and nothing symbolizes these two qualities as well as flowers. Several Christmas flowers and plants are available today which can be sent out to your loved ones to wish them "Merry XMas!" in a traditional and different style. Of course you can use all the latest technologies for sending out wishes within a few minutes, but for people you care the most there's no better way to show your love and care except Christmas flowers. So in this article we try to take a look at 5 such plants and flowers:
  3. 3. Poinsettia: This is perhaps the most recognizable flower of Christmas. Originally they're green and bright red leaves but today they're sold in several patterns and colors. Originally they grow either in white, pink or red color, but today florists dye them in different colors and even add sparkles for making them more visually compelling. TRANSITIONAL
  4. 4. Amaryllis: Another popular Christmas plant is Amaryllis. This tall, graceful and beautiful flower bulb with its huge trumpet like flowers looks like a beautiful centerpiece for the table. Its beauty seems harking the Christmas holidays. Basically the red varieties of this flower are sold for holidays; but they come in several different colors from red to white to pink to orange and also in a wide variety of patterns like solid, stripped or speckled.
  5. 5. Christmas Cactus: This is my favorite plant for Christmas. This special variety of Cactus blooms itself at the time of Christmas. It prefers to bloom at the time of Thanksgiving especially. Even after the Christmas the lovely flowers of this cactus hang down from the branches and feel like the ornaments of Christmas holidays.
  6. 6. Rosemary: This no-so-popular Christmas plant is slowly making its comeback in stores since last few years. Few centuries ago this plant used to be the part of Nativity Story in the clothes of Jesus. After sometime Christians started believing that smelling Rosemary at Christmas brings good luck in the life. Today this plant is sold as a holiday plant in several countries around the globe.
  7. 7. Christmas Tree: Without this one no list of Christmas plants and flowers can be said complete. This traditional plant is used as the centerpiece of a Christmas celebrating house since the very beginning of this festival. Several varieties of this tree are sold at the time of Christmas. These varieties include Douglas fir, Scotch pine, Norway spruce, Balsam fir, Blue spruce, Fraser fir, White pine and White spruce.
