Winter is the time when we need color most and perhaps that is why red and green decorations are so prevalent during the Christmas season. Fortunately there are many colorful plants available for gifts or our own enjoyment.


The brilliant Poinsettia is synonymous with Christmas. When you purchase one, have the salesperson wrap it in plastic and paper. Put it in a warm car and go right home, as just a breath of cold air will damage the plant.
