Less Traditional Holiday Plants

Crotons

This is a terrific plant. As you can see by the larger of the two in this photo, I have had it for quite some time, since it has made its way into such a large pot. The smaller one has only been with me a season or two.

Suddenly, however, I am seeing it being touted as a December holiday plant. Now, I am all for non-traditional plants, but this really doesn’t work with my decorating style in December.

Yes, there’s a good bit of reddish color in here, but there’s too much orange and yellow. It just screams “autumn,” the season I just left. It’s perfect for any of the autumnal holidays–but not for my December holiday.

Then again, as I always say, if we all liked the same things, what a boring world this would be!
