For Christmas floral decorations, how about featuring red flowers such as poinsettia and amaryllis ? The stunning beautiful elements of poinsettia is not petals but leaves. Nevertheless poinsettia is amazingly beautiful and considered one of the most popular flowers for Christmas decorations.
Wikipedia introduces poinsettia as follows:
The poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is a culturally and commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family that is indigenous to Mexico and Central America. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas displays. It derives its common English name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico, who introduced the plant into the United States in 1825.
As described in the above, this flower originated in Mexico and was introduced to the United Stated back in early 19th century.
In addition to poinsettia, amaryllis is also quite popular as a flower also offering the beautiful red color. During a Christmas season, home decorations using these flowers are quite popular. If you are planning to decorate your home with flower or plant arrangement, why not use these flowers ?
We are quite lucky to have poinsettia and amaryllis during Christmas season when the availability of fresh flowers is somewhat limited compared to other seasons although many flowers now grow in greenhouses even during the winter season. The decorations of these flowers can offer beautiful atmosphere by displaying them on the dining table or a fireplace mantel of the living room etc.
