Types of Christmas Flowers
Christmas is a special time of year, so it’s no surprise that there are special types of Christmas flowers that perfectly suit any gift or occasion. Here’s a guide to just some of the most popular types of seasonal Christmas plants and flowers:
Poinsettia – This is a truly striking plant that really symbolises the season. It’s very recognisable with its leaves forming the bold “flower” of the plant. Traditionally, poinsettias come in deep, rich red and white, but you can also find many hybrids in a range of colours.
Amaryllis – Another popular Christmas plant and a very rewarding gift is an amaryllis bulb. It is a stunning party centrepiece when it flowers, with huge trumpet-like flowers on the single stem. It comes in a deep red – ideal for Christmas – as well as pink, white and orange, with solid, striped or speckled flowers.
Roses – A classic for any occasion, roses are an unforgettable bouquet that will last the duration of the festive season. Deep red and creamy white work best with the traditions of the season.
Hydrangeas – With its common name being the Christmas flower, no list would be complete without the hydrangea. They’re given this name because they reach their peak flowering season around mid-December. Blue, pink and white in colour, they make a beautiful addition to any home, centrepiece or bouquet, and are a traditional addition to many SA homes over the season.
Christmas Flower Colours
Traditionally, Christmas flowers feature reds, creams and whites along with deep green foliage, but there’s a flower to suit even the most modern and creative Christmas event!
For silver and blue themed Christmas occasions, look for blue hydrangeas, white roses and orchids, and white poinsettias.
For a fun take, go for oranges, pinks and yellows in a riot of colours that suit the warm, sunny weather of the South African Christmas season.
