When we think of winter, we think of snow and cocoa indoors. We traditionally think of winter as the time that flowers and plants lay dormant. But there are flowers that bloom and flourish in the winter to help keep the winter blues at bay!

Here's a list of some of our favorite winter beauties to help brighten your home this season and hold you over until the spring.

Amaryllises

Amaryllis is a perfect choice if you're looking for a festive alternative to a poinsettia. A more unique and delicate option, these gorgeous flowers range in color from white to red and can bloom for up to ten weeks.

 

Winter Roses

Somewhat of a misnomer, the winter rose is not what people typically think of when they envision roses. The winter rose features small, delicate flowers that are gently speckled and range in color from soft whites to rich darks. These flowers are bold enough to catch the eye and subtle enough to share the stage with your other winter favorites.

Cyclamen

With gorgeous variegated leaves and bright, delicate flowers, cyclamen are a winter favorite. These plants make the ideal wintertime adornment and add a touch of spring to the colder months. Cyclamen's numerous flowers and petite size make them ideal for an understated centerpiece.

Orchids

Orchids are delicate and striking flowers that make excellent statement pieces when the weather turns frosty. Orchids are available in such a wide variety that whether you plan to place them on their own or as part of a bouquet, you'll have no trouble finding the right size and color. These spectacular flowering plants keep their flowers for months and are the ultimate addition to your winter home.

Flowering Maple

If you're looking for a houseplant to add to your collection that will provide interest year-round, a flowering maple won't disappoint. With colorful, contrasting veins, the flowers on these plants provide aesthetic interest from bud to bloom. When grown indoors, flowering maples can bloom with spectacular florals all year.

Winterberry

As its name suggests, winterberry provides a stunning array of berries in the wintertime. These plants lend a shock of color to an otherwise drab winter day. Winterberry is a type of holly with significantly softer leaves than those associated with a typical holly plant and full branches of bright red berry clusters. When harvested, winterberry is the perfect accompaniment to any holiday decor.
