Amaryllis, Paperwhites and Poinsettias by Miranda Hopkins
- Dec. 22, 2012 -
Once winter hits and bare trees and bushes remove all vestiges of the growing season, many families opt to bring a bit of the outdoors inside. One fun and very easy way to do that is by adding live plants to the holiday decorating scheme. The bright red, white or coral color of poinsettia flowers always reminds people that the winter holiday season is here. You can force bulbs indoors so that your house bursts with the white flowers of Paperwhite Narcissus bulbs, or the many varieties of color combinations of different amaryllis species. If you are looking for a gift for someone who is hard to shop for, or a token gift to give to a host or hostess when you attend a holiday party, maybe these winter holiday plants will fill that bill.
In Amaryllis, Paperwhites and Poinsettias: Growing, Propagating and Reblooming Your Holiday Plants
, Miranda Hopkins takes the reader through the history of each of the beautiful plants and provides us with an understanding on caring for them before, during and after their respective blooming periods. Miranda also describes how to propagate these plants and get them to rebloom.
