WHITE FLOWER FARM PICKS FIVE OF THEIR BEST INDOOR PLANTS AS HOLIDAY GIFTS
By December many of us are overloaded with holiday gift suggestions. So many choices. So many prices. So many tastes to consider. White Flower Farm (www.whiteflowerfarm.com) keeps it simple by offering gifts whose natural beauty brings cheer to any home or office. They've chosen five of their favorite indoor plants -- perfect gifts for family and friends across the country.
Jasmine in a Grapevine Basket ($55 each)
Native to China, Jasminum polyanthum is an evergreen vine with an exotic scent not duplicated elsewhere. The gardeners at White Flower Farm groom plants carefully at their nursery and deliver them in bud so your recipient can enjoy the sprays of snowy flowers as they first open. A rustic grapevine basket is a fitting accent and can be used to showcase other plants later.
Winter Solace -- Paperwhite and Winterberry Holly ($99 each)
The snowy white flower clusters of Paperwhite Narcissus 'Ariel' combine with stems of brilliant red Winterberry Holly to create a picture-perfect bouquet or centerpiece. Twelve bulbs fill the hurricane vase twice. Note: More containers are also available, including paperwhites in a hurricane vase for $49.
Lavender 'Goodwin Creek Grey' in a Glazed Pot ($42 each)
This lavender has silvery foliage and deep blue spikes of highly aromatic flowers. 'Goodwin Creek Grey' shows off well in its coordinated blue-green glazed ceramic pot with saucer.
Springtime in Paris Indoor Bulb Garden ($74 each)
Banish gray winter days with this sweetly perfumed collection of 22 potted bulbs, ready to begin growing on arrival. It features striking pastel Tulips and Hyacinths in a punched metal cachepot.
Gardenia in a Metal Cachepot ($49 each)
The enticing perfume of Gardenias is enough to recommend them, and one plant can bloom steadily for weeks. When grown well, they will deliver lush flowers season after season.
