Flowers are indispensable when it comes to the holidays – we all know that. We offer them as gifts and grace our tables, mantels and entryways with them as seasonal decor. But what about plants?
Durable, green, fresh and vibrant, plants are in many ways an even better bet for a gift than flowers. And if you think you’ll be sacrificing color and visual appeal, think again; many of the best offerings bloom year round or are strictly winter blooming. Take our Bromeliad Trio, for instance. This gorgeous piece unfolds in crimson and violet hues, and we’ve layered the heights to maximize the overall effect. A gift like this can go right to an indoor table or straight to the patio, where the unexpectedly seasonal color scheme becomes another holiday decoration.
Air plants are getting a lot of attention lately, and for good reason. These springy, spiky-looking evergreen perennials thrive in the South and come in a variety of colors. Containers for these little beauties run the gamut, but for a gift, we suggest picking up one of our ornaments, which makes the perfect holiday home for these unique plants.
Have someone on your list who has everything? We’re betting what they don’t have is a living work of art complete with a customized plant frame. Plants can be extraordinary sculptural pieces when they’re arranged with artistry and displayed on the wall.
The sheer variety of plants available during this time of year (and year round, in Florida) means that everyone on your list can be accommodated. Our Blooming Plant Basket is the perfect present for the office, a teacher or a neighbor. These can be replanted and maintained all year.
At Beneva Plantscapes, we’ve got lots of plant-inspired gift ideas and options. If you want to make someone’s home merry and bright this season (including yours), give a green gift that lasts well beyond the holidays.
