Houseplant of the month
The ‘Houseplant of the Month’ campaign in December focusses on the Poinsettia, whose beautifully coloured leaves are eye-catching. The classic red poinsettia is familiar, but trending for December 2019 are modern pastel colours such as salmon, pink, lemon and apricot. Poinsettia, also known as Christmas star provides a special atmosphere around the Christmas Days and ensures a colourful start into 2020.
Garden plant of the month
In December the ‘Garden Plant of the Month’ are Festive Pines. They look beautiful all year round - not just during the Christmas season. Spruce (Picea) and fir tree (Abies) offer constant greenery in the garden throughout the four seasons. Norway spruce, white spruce, Serbian spruce, Nordmann fir, noble fir and Korean fir - the range is wide, and every pine tree has its own personality.
The ‘Flower Agenda’ focusses on the Amaryllis in December. Amaryllis, also known as Hippeastrum, is a classic statement flower: large, distinctive and stately. The leafless stem usually bears four to six impressive flowers that can be as much as 20 cm across. Amaryllis is the undisputed star of mixed bouquets, but also very suitable for a statuesque solo display during the holidays.
