Top 5 Christmas Flowers

To inspire you and get you in the Christmas mood, we've listed 5 traditional Christmas flowers and plants. Poinsettia, amaryllis, Christmas rose, mistletoe, holly... Do you know them all? These typical flowers of the Christmas season create a joyful and warm atmosphere.

  • Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) : It is the queen of winter flowers. The amaryllis grows wild in South America. It is a bulbous plant with impressive red, white, pink or orange flowers.
  • Poinsettia (Christmas Star) : The poinsettia is the Christmas plant par excellence... because who doesn't know the famous Christmas star! Did you know that the poinsettia is native to Mexico? This plant only blooms when the days are short. In fact, if the Christmas star doesn't spend 14 hours a day in complete darkness, its leaves stop blushing. Want your poinsettia to bloom again? Leave it in total darkness for 14 hours a day, for 6 to 8 weeks. You'll see, its leaves will regain their beautiful red color! The poinsettia is not an easy plant. So it makes a great Christmas gift for someone with green fingers.
  • Christmas rose (Helleborus niger) : The Christmas rose grows wild in the mountains, up to a maximum altitude of 1900 meters. It can be found, for example, in the heart of the fir forests of the Eastern Alps and the Apennines. The roots of the Christmas rose are black, which gives it the name of black hellebore. The plant blooms in winter and produces beautiful white flowers. This is why the Christmas rose is so popular at the end of the year.
  • Mistletoe : Mistletoe is a hemiparasitic plant that grows on trees. This plant is often used as a traditional Christmas decoration, just like holly. Do you know the famous romantic tradition of kissing under a mistletoe branch?
  • Holly (Ilex) : The holly, like the mistletoe mentioned above, is often used as a Christmas decoration. You can recognize this plant by its tough leaves with thorns. Attention: the red berries are toxic for humans.
These plants and flowers are perfect for decorating homes and businesses for the holidays. Gift tip: Christmas plants (such as the Christmas rose and poinsettia) are very popular. They are also a lasting gift! If you take good care of a plant, you can enjoy it for a long time.

Red, white, green... all about the colors of Christmas!

Each country and even each region has its own traditions at Christmas. However, the main colors are the same everywhere. In December, the world shines with red, white and green shades. Why are these three colors so typical of Christmas? This colorful tradition started centuries ago. Red, white and green are symbolic colors representing love, faith and hope respectively! As you know, Christmas is a Christian holiday. So you won't be surprised to learn that the traditional colors of Christmas originally had a religious meaning. In the color wheel, red is in front of green, which means that they form a harmonious combination. White is also a typical Christmas color that reminds us of a white, snowy Christmas. It is so romantic!
