{favorite greenery}

Winter is closing in on us and while everything is slowly turning to brown (or shades there of..) I still crave greenery inside the home.  Of course with the holidays coming up it should be easy, but what do you do after the holidays are over....well here is your guide to some fun indoor/outdoor plants & flowers that can take you from January to December! 


Succulents.  

Love these for their low maintenance.  All you need is a cool pot and some soil and you are set. 



White Orchids.  

Classic.  Great for any room in the home.  You can buy these just about anywhere, home depot, whole foods, or your local nursery.




Mrytle topiaries

Classic, not to be confused with an ivy topiary (blah, were those really in style in the 90's?). Great for framing mantels and windows.  


Myrtle Topiary


Maidenhair fern

Great for softening spaces, dressers, end tables, empty corners.

Rosemary topiary

great for it's unique texture.  Looks good alone, works great for filling in those bare spaces on window sills or end tables.

Fiddle leaf fig trees

Totally trendy right now, but such a show stopper.  Great for tall rooms and softening empty corners



Paperwhites

So fun for the winter holidays, plant your bulbs now!



Meyer lemon trees (only bring in for the winter)

A great unique alternative tree and you get the reap the rewards with free lemons.  


Kimberly fern

My favorite for indoor and outdoor.  Totally classic.  Great for filling in those empty spaces: underneath console tables or empty fireplaces


Potted grass

Super fun in the spring, always  looks great in  unique pot.  Perfect for those small spaces that need a touch of green.



So did I forget anything....what would you add to this list?  I'm certainly no plant expert (I'v killed a few in my day....), but that it's something I'd love to learn more about and get better at someday! My mom has the best green thumb ever, hoping someday she can teach me a thing or two.
