Christmas plants are always a lovely hostess gift to give or receive and are a welcome addition to any home throughout the holiday season. While some holiday plants may seem to be destined for short shelf life, many can last for years if maintained and cared for under the right conditions.
Follow this guide to properly care for your Christmas plants to leave them feeling merry beyond the Christmas season.
Poinsettias are probably one of the most classic of all Christmas plants and come in a wide variety of shades and sizes. They are an excellent plant for holiday decorating, and the variety colour options allow them to fit into any decorative theme.
The Christmas Cactus is a succulent houseplant that acquired its name because it blooms around the Christmas season. Stems of these plants are in segments and arch gracefully as they mature, and bright pink, red, or peach flower forms at the end of each branch.
